NASA Helps to Make Face Cream, and Don't Act Like You Don't Want to Try It

In terms of product placement what's next for NASA? We've told you about them using a smartphone game to educate us about asteroids, now we find out they're teaming up with a company that sells expensive face cream.

Is our space program that much of joke that now #Spaceface is going to be the hashtag people think of when you mention the Mars Rover, and well, not the Mars Rover?

The Kiehls in Space campaign is asking people to take selfies. The winners will have their images put on some kind of figurines that will be shuttled into space.

According to the website Psfk.com

The new product the skin care company is hawking contains Aereolite, a compound made from an aerogel created by NASA " to insulate the Mars Rover and to capture interstellar dust on the 'Stardust Mission'." They're calling it the lightest solid on earth.

That all sounds really fine, but we just wish NASA kept its products off our faces. That's not to say we still don't like that dry space ice cream, though.
