Geek Tweets of the Week: The Neutron Cream Prankster Revealed

This week in the Twitterverse, our favorite geeks marveled at the cosmos, onset pranksters, and their own nerded-out kitchens. Star Trek Into Darkness actor Simon Pegg unveiled the culprit behind the movie's biggest practical joke, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Bobak Ferdowsi introduced us to our new favorite nebula. See Simon, Bob, and more in our top tweets of the week from geeks we love.

Mars Curiosity Flight Director Bobak Ferdowsi is entranced by the Grand Nebula, two of the brightest starts in the Milky Way estimated to be between 6,500 and 10,000 light years from Earth.

Benedict Cumberbatch was the unfortunate victim of the Neutron Cream prank on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness, but costar Simon Pegg reveals: he's not the mastermind behind this piece of mischief!
