Hello, you lovely nerds! As you may have noticed, Nerd HQ is coming. We are all distractingly excited and nervous about our packing skills. Come Tuesday we will be in San Diego savoring the nerdity of it all. Sigh. Before then, let’s get to this week’s news shall we?

10. You Know…

You don’t even have to ask, I’m going to start with the latest craze to sweep the nerdom, PokémonGo. I’m not hating; it’s just not my thing. I have a number of friends who are taking part and our Jaime wrote a fabulous Gamer Girl article reviewing and explaining it to us. I personally will not venture into it, unless a Harry Potter Quidditch equivalent happens. In which case, watch out! How far down the rabbit hole have you gone?

Also, we can’t stress this enough… Yes. All the yes. Please.

9. Sherlock

With news that Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Sue Vertue would be attending SDCC this year, we didn’t imagine any exciting new until then, but photographs from the set have surfaced. Looks like one of those awesome shots Sherlock has become famous for is afoot! See more photos here.

7. Emoji

There is more news for you, Disnerds! We’re getting those emojis we’ve been wanting! Hey, sometimes you need an Ariel emoji ok?! Especially when you’re talking to a friend who dreams of being a mermaid. Will be downloading these? See more here.

2. Ghostbusters

A little food for thought. Being hesitant is one thing, but when you spew hate for something beyond reason just because it will “ruin your childhood,” do me a favor and remember something. You grew up, it’s not about you anymore. This. This face is everything guys. Please let us know if you go see the movie.

1. Orion Nebula

This spectacular image of the Orion Nebula star-formation region was obtained from multiple exposures using the HAWK-I infrared camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. This is the deepest view ever of this region and reveals more very faint planetary-mass objects than expected.

Enjoy a new view of the gorgeous Orion Nebula and wonder in awe of our universe. See more here.

Keep an open mind, an open heart and Nerd On!
