Picture of the Day: The North-American nebula

Here’s a truly gorgeous image by astrophotographer Mick Hyde, a mosaic of NGC 7000 (the North American nebula) and the Pelican nebula (IC 5070). The structure on the upper left side is the North American nebula, with the darkest lobe of dust near the center forming the “Gulf of Mexico.” The star-forming region is located […]

Black Hole secrets: The S-Stars

Deep in the heart of the Milky Way resides a black hole. However, that is not the mysterious object which scientists Fabio Antonini, of the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, and David Merritt, of the Rochester Institute of Technology, have been endeavoring to explain. The objects of their attention are the orbits of massive young […]

The secrets of cicada’s sound

Of all the bugs that achieve the mantle of summer pest, cicadas are perhaps the most curious. They don’t sting, they don’t bite, they don’t buzz around your head, they taste good in chocolate, but as the drowning din of the 17-year brood this summer will remind: we would love them less if they emerged […]

Picture of the Day: Fairy Circles

Credit: Image courtesy of N. Juergens Fairy circles are circular patches of perennial grasses with a barren center that emerge in the deserts along the southwest coast of Africa. Dotting the Namibian deserts, these rings can persist for decades and occur in regular patterns.

Picture of the Day: Orion

  Humans have been gazing at Orion for millennia, but they’ve never seen it as beautiful as this. Granted, we can’t actually see it like the photo above would suggest, as the fiery glow is only visible to telescopes tuned to submillimeter radio frequencies.

Picture of the Day: Venus

Artist’s impression of an active volcano on Venus. Results from a long-term study of Venus find evidence of a clear injection of sulphur dioxide into its upper atmosphere. One possible interpretation is that volcanic activity increased the sulphur dioxide component of the upper atmosphere, although an alternative is that a change in atmospheric circulation dredged […]

Picture of the Day: Algae Bloom

The stunning picture above shows several phytoplankton blooms as seen from space, and was made available to the public by the NASA Earth Observatory.

Picture of the Day: Milk, up close

Micro-particles of lactose (milk particles) are traped in self-organized structures made from the thin film metal. The scale bar represents 4 micrometers.

Picture of the Day: It dawns at the Moon

During his evening ritual of sharing images taken from the International Space Station, Commander Chris Hadfield posted this gem: a gorgeous night-time view of the southeastern United States, with the Moon hovering over Earth’s limb and the terminator separating night from day. Dawn is just beginning to break to the east, as the ISS flies […]

Rumor has it that Windows 8.1 / Blue build 9385 could be released for download on file-sharing websites today, but a couple of new screenshots confirm that an x86 version is also out there in the wild for testing purposes.
