Felicia Day collides galaxies!

But are we safe from... colliding galaxies? Apparently, only Felicia knows for sure, as she demonstrates in this NASA PSA:

Hey! That was funny! Like, really funny! Lots of inside jokes for Felicia's fans, too ("Is this your first time doing an internet video, Miss Day?") A lot of times videos like this are just painful, but this one is actually really good. Felicia is great, and the Sean Astin stuff cracked me up.

And I think someone's been reading my book... OK, probably not. But the way she talked about all the astronomy was very natural and smooth, so I just know deep in her heart Felicia's harboring a strong and undeniable love for astronomer. I mean astronomy. Yes! Astronomy! Of course that's what I meant!

Tip o' the Guilded lily (see what I did there?) to Javier Pazos.
