The Universe’s earliest epochs appear to be written into the small dwarf galaxies orbiting our own galactic home, the Milky Way.
Our nearest galactic neighbor, the spiral Andromeda galaxy, seems to have a history of cannibalism. New research suggests that Andromeda gobbled up another large galaxy some two billion years ago.
For almost a decade, there have been rumors that Microsoft was developing a dual-screen device that would radically alter they we think about modern computing. In 2009, it was the Microsoft Courier, while more recently, patents showed something that looked more like a folding Surface allegedly codenamed Andromeda.
Look up to the sky with the unaided eye and you’ll see lots of specks and globs that look mostly like stars. On closer inspection, though, some of those dots refuse to resolve, smeared out on the night sky.
The closest galaxy to our own is the majestic Andromeda galaxy, a collection of a trillion stars located a “mere” 2 million light years away. New research suggests that, contrary to previous estimates, this galaxy isn’t much bigger than the Milky Way, and is practically our twin. This means our galaxy won’t be…
Warring angels, high-velocity music, and a tank-headed giant. Mass Effect: Andromeda cinematic designer Richard Boylan has officially confused me with Tank Head, his high-concept series of animated shorts. But that’s okay because it’s really, really pretty.
It’s October 4, and that means Google will finally reveal some hot new hardware. Among the big announcements are a new, Nexus-like phone that probably won’t be called Nexus, and a virtual reality system called Daydream. But there’s so much more, too.
Robert Hewitt Wolfe wasn’t just one of the MVPs of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He also was the developer of Andromeda and a writer on a ton of other shows, including Alphas and Elementary. So it’s great news that he’s writing a middle-grade fantasy book trilogy.
Call it the “Dead Show Walking” phenomenon. A TV show has already run out of ideas, it has no more sharks to jump, the plots are played out, and it’s clearly doomed. But it just... keeps... airing... episodes. What’s the worst example of a doomed show that kept airing that you’ve ever seen?
The merger of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxy won’t happen for another 4 billion years, but the recent discovery of a massive halo of hot gas around Andromeda may mean our galaxies are already touching.
Elon Musk tweeted "the universe is a really, really big" along with this mind-blowing Ultra-HD video. It shows the camera zooming and panning over the stunning 69,536 x 22,230, 1.5 billion-pixel, 4.3GB Andromeda galaxy panorama recently published by NASA. Indeed, the Universe is a huge place full of wonder.
Science fiction is full of alien races who kick all kinds of ass, including tough warrior races and highly advanced super-intelligent aliens. But who's the greatest race of all? Which race do you wish you could go spend a year or two living with? Who's most likely to conquer all other races in the multiverse?
Television can go anywhere and explore any time — but we all know the best TV shows take place out in the final frontier. Television has shaped our dreams of space exploration for decades. But what's the best space TV show of all time?
This is how the Great Spiral Galaxy of Andromeda would look in the sky if it were bright enough. Sadly, its light is too faint. But imagine seeing that every night. Would you get tired of it? I know I wouldn't.
That beautiful image you see up there is our twin galaxy Andromeda. A neighbor that's right next door, a mere 2.5 million light-years-away. And this new portrait was taken by an all-new telescope camera that's got a whole life of stellar shots ahead of it.
A new instrument on Japan's Subaru telescope has enabled astronomers to photograph Andromeda, the Milky Way's neighboring galaxy, in a whole new light.
There's turmoil in two galaxies, if rumors are to be believed. First of all, rumor has it that Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz, writers of Thor and X-Men: First Class, are going to be the main writers of Star Trek 3. And meanwhile, J.J. Abrams may have abandoned Star Wars: Episode VII. Update: Lucasfilm has…
Tomorrow, an army of geeks descends on San Diego — and many of them would kill to write for television. Comic-Con always hosts panels about TV writing, and they're always standing-room only. But how do you learn the craft? We asked some great television writers, and they told us 11 books that every aspiring scribe…
In four billion years, Andromeda will collide with the Milky Way. That will be an amazing view—but until then we have to look at it from a distance. This new photo by the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory shows a beautiful view. From NASA:
