» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Quadrantid Meteors through Orion

Why are these meteor trails nearly parallel? Because they were all shed by the same space rock and so can be traced back to the same direction on the sky: the radiant of the Quadrantid Meteor Shower. This direction used to be toward the old constellation of Quadrans Muralis, hence the name Quadrantids, but when the International Astronomical Union formulated its list of modern constellations in 1922, this constellation did not make the list. Even though the meteors are now considered to originate from the recognized constellation of Bootes, the old name stuck. Regardless of the designation, every January the Earth moves through a dust stream and bits of this dust glow as meteors as they heat up in Earth's atmosphere. The featured image composite was taken on January 4 with a picturesque snowy Slovakian landscape in the foreground, and a deep-exposure sky prominently featuring the constellation Orion in the background. The red star Betelgeuse appears unusually dim -- its fading over the past few months is being tracked by astronomers.

I absolutely love the practical, physical space parts of game development. Foley recording sessions are fascinating, as is watching motion capture actors. It’s cooler yet when actors aren’t playing humans, which is why this video of Monster Hunter: World‘s motion capture is wonderful and hilarious. An actor is suited up star in a fight scene […]

Developer Big Ant has just released AO Tennis 2 (on PC via Steam), and the series as a whole has taken a somewhat circuitous route to get to this moment. The first title released in Australia early last year to coincide with the Australian Open (which the franchise has the license for), and required a substantial day-one patch. Big Ant then...
