» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Deep Field: Nebulae of Sagittarius

These three bright nebulae are often featured on telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. In fact, 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula just left of center, and colorful M20 on the top left. The third emission region includes NGC 6559 and can be found to the right of M8. All three are stellar nurseries about five thousand light-years or so distant. Over a hundred light-years across, the expansive M8 is also known as the Lagoon Nebula. M20's popular moniker is the Trifid. Glowing hydrogen gas creates the dominant red color of the emission nebulae. In striking contrast, blue hues in the Trifid are due to dust reflected starlight. Recently formed bright blue stars are visible nearby. The colorful composite skyscape was recorded in 2018 in Teide National Park in the Canary Islands, Spain.

TV over Video Games ? The Entertainment Factor

May 21, 2019 - 6:34 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
Everyone is talking about the end of Game of Thrones today. Many websites, especially game websites are covering it as their top story, if not top five stories. This marks a shift in journalism which has been going on in a while. When pop culture news shifts away from games to entertainment, things can get different for hardcore audiences. Are we in a short phase of entertainment out performing games on the pop culture stage?... [Read More]

Your Marvel Comics Reading List Ahead Of Ultimate Alliance 3

May 21, 2019 - 6:34 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar

For many fans, part of the fun of the previous Marvel Ultimate Alliance games is seeing all the character cameos, in-jokes, and other nods to the expanded Marvel fiction. From what we’ve seen of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, that kind of encyclopedic knowledge of the fiction certainly isn’t necessary to have a good time. But, if you’d like to tap... [Read More]

First Steps Into World of Warcraft Classic

May 21, 2019 - 6:34 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
This past week we not only found out WoW Classic will be live worldwide August 27th, but the Beta test for it has also officially started. There's no NDA or streaming restriction on this Beta test, as is generally the case with Blizzard, but I'm hopeful this will function as a real Beta where issues which arise can be dealt with before the game goes live instead of Beta being treated more like marketing for their upcoming thing....
