Corona’s entire career is educating the public — especially kids — about space. Her official title at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is “Mission Mascot.” But one of her main priorities is to get young girls to pursue careers in science. Oh, and she also trains to fly to space. No big deal.
The Curiosity rover is currently trekking around Mars on a historic two-year mission. The ‘bot tweets almost every day to update the public with what she (yes, Curiosity is female) sees on the Red Planet. But she gets the most points for her winning personality.
Fifteen-year-old Clara Ma named the Mars Curiosity rover. Her science-filled feed proves that this teenager has a big future ahead of her. (And we’ll gladly admit that she makes us feel like under-achievers.)
Simple and to the point, the lowflyingrocks account mentions every object that passes within 0.2AU (an astronomical unit is equal to the distance between Earth and the sun) of Earth. UK engineer @TomTaylor runs the account.
Scott Maxwell is one of the coolest handles on Twitter: @marsroverdriver. The engineer is the lead Mars rover planner, driving the Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) Spirit and Opportunity at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
We are rounding out our list with the best Mars Rover parody account we’ve seen. In fact, it’s so good that a lot of the other people who made this list follow (and re-tweet) this hilarious take on the Curiosity Rover.
Could a clear iPhone be in the future? The people behind this concept seem to think so.
Everyone was buzzing during Apple’s 4S keynote, when Siri was revealed. But the parody version “GLaDOSiri” might have the biggest mouth of all.

After a snippet of the official iPhone 5 promo leaked statistics on user food photos, this parody video revealed a snarky product.

One of Apple’s most famous campaigns (“There’s an app for that.”) led to dozens of jokes and parodies, including this hilarious but slightly realistic interpretation of the app revolution.
5. iOS 4 on 3G Parody

6. Introducing Siri — iPhone 4S Parody
When Apple introduced Siri, the spoofs seemed never-ending. This clip in particular was one of the top-shared.

Apple fans have anticipated the iPhone 5 since 2011, when instead, it turned out to be the iPhone 4S. In the meantime, we’ve heard dozens of rumors and seen many interesting potential features — including this clear concept.
8. Banned iPhone 4S Promo
Grab some nerdy men, add a couple strong drinks and you have a hilarious advertisement that Apple would never approve.
9. HTC EVO vs iPhone 4
Of course, this roundup wouldn’t be complete without the old “Android versus Apple” rivalry. This odd video of two animated characters makes a standard customer service conversation hilariously entertaining.
10. Conan on the Lost iPhone 5
Before the launch of nearly every new iPhone, Apple manages to “lose” a prototype. Conan spoofs the incident during his late night talk show.

A view down 23rd Street, headed east.
