A new image from NASA's Webb telescope captures an alluring image of the galaxy cluster known as 'El Gordo' has unveiled tantalizing new objects never seen before. The image gives more clarity to a variety of distant objects that the Hubble Space Telescope could only hint at in the past. El Gordo is considered to... Read more...
It’s summer time, which means it’s time for new folding phones from Samsung. Today at its Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul (South Korea), the company unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip5 ($999) and Galaxy Z Fold5 ($1799). But as you’ll soon discover, “new” is a bit of a stretch here. These two... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captures an image of one of the Milky Way's odd neighbors, ESO 174-1. Images like this are taken by Hubble in between other observations in order to maximize every bit of Hubble's observing time. Irregular galaxies, like ESO 174-1, take on odd and unusual shapes, like a toothpick... Read more...
A pair of supermassive black holes, known as a binary black hole system, emitted a flare that is brighter than a trillion stars. The duo is located in galaxy OJ287 and are so close together they appear as one dot in the night sky. Galaxy OJ287 lies in the direction of the constellation Cancer at approximately 5... Read more...
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) captured images of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 5068 in spectacular fashion utilizing its MIRI and NIRCam instruments. The images were shared recently by NASA Administrator Bill Nelson during an event with students at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Poland. Images... Read more...
Recent discoveries of previously unexplained structures in the center of the Milky Way have stunned astrophysicists. New radio telescope images revealed hundreds of filaments along the galactic plane, believed to have originated only a few million years ago, as a result a an outflow from Sagittarius A*, the...

NASA has shared an animation that attempts to put the colossal size of supermassive black holes into perspective. There are more than 100 of these mammoth black holes, such as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) at the center of our very own Milky Way, confirmed by direct measurements. While there are smaller black holes that... Read more...
Samsung might be stacking its battery life on future devices with EV technology. Samsung SDI has been working with two Chinese companies to develop new stacking equipment utilized in battery production, according to a recent report. Samsung SDI is the department that currently develops and manufactures Li-Ion... Read more...
A NASA balloon-borne telescope captured phenomenal images of the Tarantula Nebula and Antennae Galaxies from 108,000 feet above Earth's surface. The Super Pressure Balloon Imaging Telescope (SuperBIT) was launched earlier this month from Wanaka, New Zealand. When one thinks of incredible images from space captured... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope continues to provide awe-inspiring images of deep space, as the space agency shares an image the observatory captured of galaxy M100 as its Picture of the Day. Hubble captured the superb image using its Wide Field Camera 3. The image was previously featured as Picture of the Day back on... Read more...
If you are in the market for a solid midrange phone, you might not have to look further than the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G. The A54 is a bit of a budget beast, trading blows with the Pixel 6A, and it's available for preorder with trade-in and free Galaxy Buds for $239.99 right now. The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is a 6.4”...

Chinese graphics card maker Galax has launched a trio of GeForce RTX 4080 HOF OC LAB graphics cards. These are perhaps the only graphics cards directly targeting extreme overclockers, now that the EVGA Kingpin series of GPUs are history. Galax’s new RTX 4080 HOF models boast some way-out specs including up to 470W... Read more...
Following two decades of monitoring a dusty gas filament (known as X7) from W. M. Keck Observatory, astronomers believe the cloud will eventually get pulled toward Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) and later "cause some fireworks" as it gets consumed by the supermassive black hole. Astronomers project that Sgr A* will... Read more...
Images from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) have astronomers questioning current cosmological models. The images contain a half dozen galaxies that existed 500 to 700 million years after the Big Bang, with more mass than was thought to have existed in the entire Universe at that time. The group of...

Astronomers spotted an unexpected trail in the gas surrounding a dwarf galaxy while using the Hubble Space Telescope. During the team's observations, a trail of an ejected supermassive black hole is believed to have been detected. The light emitting from the trail traveled more than 7.5 billion years to reach Earth... Read more...
For the first time ever, researchers have been able to examine very compact structures of star clusters inside galaxies, thanks to the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The research was recently published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Albert Einstein developed his theory of general... Read more...
Yes, it’s that time of year again. Today at its Galaxy Unveiled event in San Francisco, Samsung launched its newest flagships – the Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+, and S23 – and I was able to briefly spend time with each phone.

Astronomers utilizing the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in India, have detected a signal with a lookback time of a phenomenal 8.8 billion years. The radio signal originated from the most distant galaxy so far at a specific wavelength known as the 21 cm line. This is the first instance a radio signal of this... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured an intruder in one of its images as the space agency attempts to fill in the gaps of the Milky Way. When the project was first proposed, 75% of all the Milky Way nearby neighbors had been imaged by Hubble. The project aims to use the gaps between longer Hubble observations in... Read more...
