NASA’s Kepler Twitter Account Just Tweeted Out Something Pretty NSFW

NASA’s Kepler spacecraft looks for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. But recently, Kepler’s Twitter account got hacked… and showed its 569,000 followers a full moon.

The account is usually reserved for providing updates about the Kepler mission, which seeks to survey the Milky Way Galaxy, looking for planets with similar conditions to Earth that are perhaps inhabitable. However, that Twitter users made a very different discovery when they visited Kepler’s Twitter account.

The hacker(s?) pinned a tweet displaying a red underwear-clad butt, which has since been deleted, but not before showing up on the NASA homepage. Lots of social media users have been making space-butt jokes about the debacle.

Eventually the folks running the Kepler Twitter caught on…

And that only led to more butt jokes… or requests for more butts.

Hopefully in the future, NASA will know to use a better password than space123 or earthruleZ.  Whatever password they used, it was probably better than Mark Zuckerberg’s “dadada” that got him hacked recently. Seriously, what’s up with highly secure organizations using crappy passwords?
