This week in Crave: The starry-eyed edition

This week, we put on some fancy R2-D2 eye makeup and looked toward the sun to see Venus in transit. Then we turned ourselves into Google Street View vans.

Too busy having awkward Airtime conversations with strangers this week to keep up with Crave? Now that the weekly roundup has arrived, you've got the perfect excuse to ignore those random video chat requests.
