This week in Crave: The stargazing edition

This week, we looked skyward to see Discovery's last flight -- and constellations made using LEDs, fiber optics, nylon line, and giant slingshots. Also, we got a rare look inside DC Comics' N.Y. headquarters and took a ride on a superyacht fit for supervillains.

Too busy lamenting that Japan gets all the cool stuff first to keep up with Crave this week? Cheer up! We've got plenty of cool stuff right here in our look back at the week that was.
