61 Space Puns That Are Out Of This World

A pun: A joke that is a humorous play on words, using words that sound alike and/or the same meaning.

No space joke collection is complete without puns. Whether you choose one which is every inch for comedy effect or slips a few quick quips into your every day chats with family and friends, you'll love our space pun list!

For our collection of out of this world puns we've counted space as our solar system, scoured the planets and the stars, and even come back down to earth to bring you 61 of the best. Maybe when you've finished with this selection you could make up your own?

Try using the words stars, rocket, astronaut, planet, universe, and more to create your own genius word-play. Com-met us with your best and most passion-aut performance, and you'll have everyone laughing in no time.  If you really want to impress with your space puns, maybe you can build some puns around these fun facts:

- Astronauts are weightless so can sleep in any direction, but have to attach themselves to something, so they don't bump into anything, then it really would be 'Sleepless In The Shuttle'. (see what we did there?!).

- Astronauts still get treats in space. Could you slip freeze-dried ice cream into a pun?

- The sun is described as an average-sized star, but it could still fit one million earths inside it.
