Hubble scientists like to honour the telescope’s birthday with an annual release of 4/20-worthy space porn, and this year’s pic is as stunning as ever.The image, in full below, offers an updated view of the Southern Crab Nebula.The image shows a pair of stars, a red giant and a white dwarf.But the nebula has long been a source of mystery, according to a Hubble press release.It was initially described as a star until a 1989 observation revealed the outer pair of bubbles.Only after a 1999 Hubble observing run could astronomers resolve the inner structure, demonstrating that the process that created the outer bubbles seems to have happened again.
The new Star Wars Episode 9 trailer included a laugh track you may’ve recognized.You probably reacted to the end of the first trailer for The Rise of Skywalker like Han Solo right after getting un-frozen from his carbonite block: “I know that laugh.” But we won’t know what it all means until the movie is released, right?As it turns out, JJ Abrams, director of this Star Wars film, was more than happy to lend additional confirmation to the hint given in the trailer.During the Star Wars Celebration 2019 event in Chicago this month, Ian McDiarmid appeared onstage.He didn’t just appear onstage for a Q session for Star Wars in general.He wasn’t just there because he’s one of the most important people in the entire Star Wars universe (thus far, anyway).

Like the popular Summer Heights High (and its spinoffs, Ja’mie: Private School Girl and Jonah from Tonga, which was pulled from the air in 2017 for being racist), Lunatics is a mockumentary following a bevy of characters all played by Lilley.In place of unseemly students and teachers, the characters are a celebrity pet psychic, a boy Instagrammer, a 7′3″ YouTube star, a porn star-turned-hoarder, a realtor with a very large butt, and a sexually experimental fashion designer.Lilley’s producer has already had to clarify that—even though Lilley’s South African pet psychic has tanned skin and an afro—“Lilley is not portraying a woman of color” but rather “a white woman with huge 70s style curly hair.” Which would be more convincing if Lilley didn’t have a history playing characters blackface and brownface and yellowface—and not apologizing for it because he finds only playing Australian white men limiting.It’s a bit like finding an awkward photo of yourself in middle school, but instead of braces and acne, the embarrassing bits are the casual racism, homophobia, and sexism you used to accept and maybe even find funny.A keen observer, he inhabits each of his characters so fully he can sometimes make you forget they’re all played by the same person.Quentin, the large-rumped realtor, is a sharp sendup of bro culture—perpetual frattiness, vaping, horrible DJing and all.
Haynes car manuals are pretty iconic in the design world, as are Star Wars' TIE Fighters.Just in time for May the 4th (Star Wars Day), the two are coming together in a fully licensed and authorised new book.Haynes' Star Wars manual promises to be "the most thorough technical guide to the TIE Fighter available," including lots of photos, schematics, CGI artwork and a specially-commissioned cutaway.The manual is written by Ryder Windham, who has apparently authored and co-authored more than seventy books about Star Wars.Honestly this has made us feel like slackadaisies, we haven't even managed one.The book details the evolution of Sienar Fleet Systems’ twin ion engine space superiority fighter, with everything from early concepts and prototypes to bombers, boarding craft and shuttles.
Over the last year or so, Beijing-based online celebrity Liu Qikun has noticed a significant drop in his income from videos: from as high as RMB 200,000 (around $30,000) a month to a few tens of thousands.“Every time I would upload a jiaozi video, a dumpling video, I would get 200,000 fans,” he said, referring to the humorous clips in which he consumes unusual dumplings of his own creation.While updated official figures aren’t available, his personal impression is that Chinese viewers aren’t spending as much time on Douyin as before.Last fall, Zhang Fuping–vice president of Bytedance, the company behind Douyin and its international version TikTok–said that the domestic daily active user (DAU) count had hit 200 million as of October.Influencer Liu Qikun, whose online handle is “Uncle Beibei” (our translation), supplements his earnings from short videos with a job at a multi-channel network (MCN), where he advises other Douyin celebrities on their careers.“About half a year after I encountered Douyin, I quit my banking job [in Hulun Beir, Inner Mongolia] and came to Beijing to make short videos.”
Nowhere was that better on display this weekend than the “Star Wars Rebels Remembered” panel, where executive producer Dave Filoni, along with actors Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Grey spoke about the concluded series and revealed some new secrets about how that shocking ending went down.The ending, of course, skips over the events of the entire Original Trilogy and sees Hera with a son, Ezra and Thrawn still missing, and Sabine and Ahsoka riding off to find them.It was an ending that Filoni only told a few people at Lucasfilm about, just to make sure it was okay, before writing Sabine’s narration on a piece of paper as he flew on Southwest Airlines from San Francisco to Los Angeles to record voices.On the panel, the cast explained that after recording their final day on the show, Filoni let everyone leave and asked only Sircar to stay.However, when it was just her, Filoni and the sound engineer remaining, Filoni took a folded piece of paper out of his pocket and handed it to her.It was Sabine’s narration revealing the true ending of the series.

Rey basically said "hell no" to the prospect of romance with Kylo Ren at the end of The Last Jedi (and actress Daisy Ridley reinforced that), but I ran into a couple that made it a reality at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.Walking to the convention last Thursday, I chatted with a lovely Swedish pair, Liv and Robert.Our paths crossed again on the show floor, but I didn't see them again all weekend.Turned out they had an experience that transcended The Rise of Skywalker revelations, The Mandalorian footage or the glimpse at The Clone Wars season 7.This pair, who met online and have been together three years, made Reylo a reality at the convention's Ahch-To photo display.Dressed as Rey and Kylo, they re-created an intimate moment by touching hands while cosplayer Phil portrayed Luke Skywalker.
The 2019 New York International Auto Show has been a big one for SUVs and crossovers.We saw the debut of no fewer than 10 of them, including concepts and while they all follow the same general design brief, they are all distinct and exciting, spanning a huge size and price range.That said, it does represent a huge leap forward for the model.The new Escape is softer and more car-like than ever, and that's because Ford is making room in the range for a new, more off-road-focused baby Bronco.This leaves Escape free to tone down all the chunky plastic bodywork pastiche of Escapes past and focus on being an enjoyable and versatile small SUV.The 2020 model will debut with a couple of interesting engine options including a turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine, a four-cylinder EcoBoost unit and you'll also be able to get it as both a plug-in and non-plug-in hybrid when it hits the market in the fall of 2019.
Not that interest in Star Wars has ever really abated over the last half-decade, but still: it’s clear the new Rise of Skywalker trailer’s struck a chord.As such, we asked Star Wars fans to take the new trailer and any other media shared thus far from the Star Wars cast and crew, and share them all in one place.This is the first wave.In the gallery below you’ll see a selection of images cut from the original teaser trailer and adjusted to fit your smartphone or tablet or desktop.Some of these images come from elsewhere – press photos, and the like.The Rise of Skywalker is the third in a set of three films made by Lucasfilm in the last 4 years.
The Hubble Space Telescope started its stellar journey on April 24, 1990 by hitching a ride on the space shuttle Discovery.NASA and the European Space Agency are celebrating its 29th anniversary with a picture of a wild nebula that looks like it could lurk under the waves.ESA described the hourglass-shaped Southern Crab Nebula as "peculiar."It's the creation of a binary star system made up of a red giant and a white dwarf."The red giant is shedding its outer layers in the last phase of its life before it too lives out its final years as a white dwarf," ESA said.Some of the material from the red giant is pulled to the white dwarf, which in turn ejects it outward, feeding this spectacular nebula formation.
Before he died, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen worked on a simulation machine called the Holodome, which turned his passions into virtual experiences.The Holodome features three mind-bending simulations: a climb atop Mount Everest, a peek inside paintings by Monet, and a journey into the center of a black hole.The annual TED conference in Vancouver, Canada, is known for its thought-provoking talks, but it has also become a platform to showoff futuristic technologies.For the past few days, the more daring attendees have lined up outside the Holodome, a simulation machine developed by Vulcan, a private company started by late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.Read more: 'Like looking at the gates of Hell': Astronomers just revealed the first picture of a black hole, and it's a monsterThe device offers three virtual experiences: a climb atop Mount Everest, a peek inside paintings by Claude Monet, and a frightening journey into the center of a black hole.
South Korean developer Neowiz announced that its original IP Brown Dust surpassed 2 million downloads since debuting on iOS and Android in March.It’s a free-to-play tactical role-playing game in which you assemble a team of mercenaries to fight against monsters in turn-based battles.Like a lot of other mobile RPGs (such as Fire Emblem: Heroes and Dragalia Lost), Brown Dust uses a gachapon-style summoning mechanic for the mercenaries — you’ll never know which hero you get.To celebrate the download milestone, Brown Dust is giving away a bevy of in-game items, including summon tickets for new mercenaries.Games like this usually give a few summons for free (as a daily log-in reward or for seasonal events), and you can pay for additional tickets with real money.Brown Dust has more than 300 characters in the game — each with their own anime portraits, abilities, and star ratings — so it definitely encourages people to collect as many of them as they can.
