» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Arp 194: Merging Galaxy Group

Why are stars forming in the bridge between these colliding galaxies? Usually when galaxies crash, star formation is confined to galaxy disks or tidal tails. In Arp 194, though, there are bright knots of young stars right in a connecting bridge. Analyses of images and data including the featured image of Arp 194 from Hubble, as well as computer simulations of the interaction, indicate that the bottom galaxy passed right through the top galaxy within the past 100 million years. The result has left a stream of gas that is now falling toward the bottom galaxy. Astronomers hypothesize that stars form in this bridge because of the recent fading of turbulence after the rapid collision. In about a billion years, the galaxies -- including a smaller galaxy superposed on the upper galaxy (see it?) -- will all merge into one larger galaxy.

Looking for some fresh The Division 2 keychains to up your back bling game? The Division 2 is a remarkably po-faced game for the most part, and you won’t find too many light moments while exploring post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C. Thankfully, there’s plenty of harmless fun to be had when it comes to playing dress-up with your very stern-faced Division Agent. There is one piece of equipment that stands head and shoulders above the rest though: the humble backpack keychain. A number of these... [Read More]

Sure a standard air-cooler will get the job done, but if you want to keep things cheery and chilled throughout your CPU's life then a good all-in-one (AIO) cooler is the way to go.The top cooling manufacturers have been put through their pace on our test bench, with AIO liquid CPU coolers from AlphaCool, Thermaltake, NZXT, Arctic, and of course Corsair. But why do you need to go all... [Read More]
