» Astronomy Pic of the Day: M16: In and Around the Eagle Nebula

From afar, the whole thing looks like an Eagle. A closer look at the Eagle Nebula, however, shows the bright region is actually a window into the center of a larger dark shell of dust. Through this window, a brightly-lit workshop appears where a whole open cluster of stars is being formed. In this cavity tall pillars and round globules of dark dust and cold molecular gas remain where stars are still forming. Already visible are several young bright blue stars whose light and winds are burning away and pushing back the remaining filaments and walls of gas and dust. The Eagle emission nebula, tagged M16, lies about 6500 light years away, spans about 20 light-years, and is visible with binoculars toward the constellation of the Serpent (Serpens). This picture involved over 25 hours of imaging and combines three specific emitted colors emitted by sulfur (colored as red), hydrogen (yellow), and oxygen (blue).

Project Warlock is badass í90s FPS by a developer who barely remembers the í90s

Oct 13, 2018 - 11:01 AM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
The '90s brought about enduring phenomenons such as the Spice Girls, Jurassic Park and being disappointed in Star Wars - but it also gave birth to the FPS, which quickly became the hottest gaming genre on the planet. There's a new retro-style FPS out next week that harks back to the simpler era of the '90s, with one interesting point - it's from a developer who barely even saw the '90s. Project Warlock is out on October 18 as a timed exclusive on GOG.com, and it's an FPS that homages '90s... [Read More]
