Weyes Blood – “Movies” Video

Last month, Natalie Mering announced her next Weyes Blood album, Titanic Rising, the follow-up to 2016's Front Row Seat To Earth. We've heard two tracks from it so far, "Everyday" and "Andromeda," and she also recently performed another new song, "Something To Believe," live. More »

The Windows OS is perfect for gadgets with folding displays

Think about it. We’ve been using Windows with large screens almost all our life. It still remains the most popular desktop/laptop OS, used by people of all ages, and even though Google’s ChromeOS and Apple’s MacOS are strong contenders, there’s a certain framework that Windows uses that’s universal. A start button and taskbar at the bottom, files and folders appearing as windows that can be minimized and maximized, and a screen that’s conducive to power-usage and multitasking. Windows is the per...

The science of expansion: Andromeda, gravity, and the ‘Big Rip’

The Andromeda Galaxy and our Milky Way are on a collision course that will obliterate life on Earth 4.5 billion years from now.The universe is expanding in all directions, all at once – so why are Andromeda and the Milky Way drawing nearer? The gravity between them is a stronger force than expansion.The rate of expansion is accelerating. If it continues to speed up, its force may become strong enough pull things apart that are currently held together by superior forces: Our galaxy, the solar sys...

We Finally Know When Our Milky Way Will Crash Into the Andromeda Galaxy

Our Milky Way galaxy will survive in its current form a bit longer than some astronomers had thought, a new study suggests.The monster collision between our Milky Way and fellow spiral galaxy Andromeda will occur about 4.5 billion years from now, according to the new research, which is based on observations made by Europe's Gaia spacecraft. Some prominent previous estimates had predicted the crash would happen significantly sooner, in about 3.9 billion years."This finding is crucial to our u...

Andromeda galaxy will deliver a 'glancing blow' to our Milky Way later than expected

Astronomers have long suspected that the colossal Andromeda galaxy would, in billions years, collide with our humble Milky Way. The collision was forecast to happen in some 3.9 billion years. But after astronomers analyzed new data captured by the European Space Agency's star-surveying satellite Gaia, they now put the imminent date at 4.5 billion years — so 600 million years later than initially expected. The event, detailed in The Astrophysical Journal, is characterized as a "swipe" rathe...

A California start-up beat Microsoft and Samsung to the foldable tablet/phone

You’re not looking at the Microsoft Andromeda, or the flexible phone Samsung has been rumoredly working on, or Logitech’s flexible phone. You’re looking at the Flexpai, a flexible phone/tablet from California-based Royole. The most interesting thing about the Flexpai is that it isn’t a proof-of-concept. The tablet/phone is literally available for pre-order.The Flexpai comes with a foldable body and a display that sits on the outside when folded (rather than Microsoft’s Andromeda, where the scr...

Equal Galaxies?

The Milky Way galaxy and its nearest big neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, are like two children on a see-saw: They’re up and down. Both are giant spiral galaxies. Andromeda is about two-and-a-half million light-years away, in the constellation Andromeda. Under dark skies, it’s just visible as a hazy smudge of light — the farthest object that most people can see with their eyes alone. Over the last few decades, astronomers have measured the mass of the two galaxies many times. But they keep coming...

Cetus

The constellation Cetus is entering the late-evening sky. Early star maps depict it as a fish with the head of a dragon or lion. Cetus had an appetite for young ladies, but when he tried to devour the princess Andromeda, he was slain by Perseus.

Modified gravity in plane sight

Our Galaxy—the Milky Way—is a vast rotating disk containing billions of stars along with huge amounts of gas and dust. Its diameter is around 100,000 light years. The Milky Way has many satellite galaxies (e.g. the Magellanic Clouds), which orbit around it. Most of these satellites lie in a thin plane and rotate within it. The same is also true for the satellites of our neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda. Though this has been known for many years, the origin of these satellite planes has remained a ...

Astronomers found the mangled remains of the Milky Way’s galactic twin

Science fiction disaster movies like to imagine what life on Earth might be like in the midst of a space-borne catastrophe like an asteroid strike, but reality can be even more frightening. Imagine — instead of a collision between a smallish planet like Earth and a large space rock — two entire galaxies running into each other, gradually merging as countless stars and planets twist, turn, and collide. That incredible event appears to be what claimed the life of a galaxy much like our own Milky W...

The Surface Phone isn’t being killed, just ‘significantly reworked’

It’s been a whirlwind month for rumors on Project Andromeda, better known as the quasi-mythical Surface Phone. First the Verge reported it was coming soon. Then Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet said to not expect it this year – or maybe ever, leading to a petition to save Andromeda that has thus far garnered over 15,000 signatures. Now Brad Sams at Thurrott says there’s more to the story. Specifically: As of last year, Microsoft planned to ship Andromeda in late 2018 but as recently as a couple weeks ag...

Microsoft has a new, super-small $400 Surface tablet, and it's taking on the iPad and the MacBook Air at the same time (MSFT, AAPL)

The Microsoft Surface Go is a teeny-tiny laptop/tablet hybrid with a 10-inch screen, clocking in at just 1.15 pounds.  Pricing for the Surface Go starts at $400, but you'll probably also need the keyboard type cover, which starts at $99. It's powerful enough for most day-to-day computing tasks, but don't expect it to be a gaming powerhouse or a video-editing monster.  It runs a full version of Windows 10. Microsoft says this makes it more functional than an Apple iPad, while still being more v...
