More Space Puns Jokes

Here are a couple of longer funny space jokes and puns that are out of this world funny:

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are camping on a case they are investigating. After putting up the tent, having a good dinner, and drinking a bottle of wine, they go to sleep.

In the middle of the night, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend.

“Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see,” Holmes says, shivering.

“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes,” replies Watson.

“And what do you deduce from that?”

Watson ponders for a minute.

“Well, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Somewhere in the universe with so many billions of stars similar to the sun, there is a high probability that some of these stars have Earth-like planets. And assuming the Earth is typical, some may have developed intelligent life. It means that humanity, may not be alone in this vast cosmos. What did you deduce Holmes?”

Holmes is silent for a moment before he replies.

“Quite,” he says. “Though my more immediate concern is the fact that, clearly, someone has stolen our tent.”

There were 3 people, and they were all bragging about their country. The first person says, “We were the first in space!”

And the second responds, “Well, we were first on the moon! Beat that!”

So the third person says, “Well, that’s nothing. Me and my crew are going to the sun!”

“How are you going to do that?” said the other two.

“Well duh! We are going to go at night!”
