NASA’s low Earth orbit Hubble telescope recently captured a stunning image of a distant galaxy collision, a phenomenon NASA said has become more common as the universe evolves. The newly released image reveals the stunning aesthetic produced by the modern celestial occurrence in what looks like a dreamy cosmic fantasy land.

The image shows the aftermath of a collision between two “good-sized galaxies” that will gradually morph into one “giant elliptical galaxy,” called NGC 3597, according to NASA. The image shows a galactic merge that’s at least 150 million light-years away and involves a hypnotic spectrum of colors including various shades of red, blue, purple and green.

You’ll Never Be Spider-Man, Science Says

Science tells us a lot of things, in many cases things we didn’t even know we needed to know. Without science, we’d be ignorant to the brain functions of dead salmon, the complex physical properties of the human ponytail and the most and least painful areas of the human body to be stung by a bee. 

Now, a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has officially determined that, no, you cannot be Spider-Man.

A team of researchers from four universities concluded that as animals grow, they require more and more adhesive padding on their bodies to climb surfaces the way an insect or a frog does, and that for a human to successfully ascend a smooth vertical would require 40% of the person’s surface area covered in adhesive material like that which pads gecko feet.

Researchers Are Pretty Sure They’ve Found A New Planet In Our Solar System

Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown, two CalTech scientists, say the new planet is about 10 times the mass of Earth and has an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium. Science magazine reports that the mysterious “Planet X” moves in a distant orbit beyond Neptune.

The researchers haven’t observed Planet X itself, but believe it exists because of the unique configuration of six objects when they come closest to the sun, according to Science.

The scientists say that there’s a 0.007 percent probability that the configuration is due to chance, and instead are confident it’s a ninth planet. They believe they will observe the planet with a telescope within five years, according to The Associated Press.

Neil deGrasse Tyson lays B.o.b.’s theory flat on ‘The Nightly Show’

It’s time to put this “flat Earth” conspiracy theory to an end, once and for all.

The week has been punctuated with rappers starting beefs — either with other rappers — or, in B.o.b’s case, with science in general. His Twitter storm about why he thinks the Earth is actually flat even caught the attention of world-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

After a heated Twitter debate and diss tracks by both B.o.b and Tyson’s rapper nephew, the scientist decided to appear on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to (hopefully) put the matter to rest and lay down some hard knowledge.

Solar Filament Collapses In Stunning New NASA Sun Video

.

A hypnotic new NASA video shows a solar filament erupt, causing explosions and then forming a series of giant magnetic arches of solar material, all of which ultimately collapse into the sun. 

“The arches of solar material appear to glow as they emit light in extreme ultraviolet wavelengths, highlighting the charged particles spinning along the sun’s magnetic field lines,” the space agency said in a news release. 

Solar filaments are arcs of plasma in the sun’s atmosphere, which appear as dark lines because they’re not as hot as the rest of the sun, according to the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.

Here’s Why Scientists Are Giving Tiny Glasses To Insects

Researchers are equipping praying mantises with stylish 3D shades — and not just for fun. 

The tiny glasses were used in a study published in the journal Scientific Reports on Thursday to analyze 3D vision in mantises, and to explore how they use their vision to hunt. 

Better understanding how the insects use 3D vision may help scientists develop new ideas about how to use 3D in technology, Dr. Jenny Read, professor of vision science at Newcastle University in England and the study’s leader, said in a statement.

Scientists struggle to stay grounded after possible gravitational wave signal

Not for the first time, the world of physics is abuzz with rumours that gravitational waves have been detected by scientists in the US.

Lawrence Krauss, a cosmologist at Arizona State university, tweeted that he had received independent confirmation of a rumour that has been in circulation for months, adding: “Gravitational waves may have been discovered!!”

My earlier rumor about LIGO has been confirmed by independent sources. Stay tuned! Gravitational waves may have been discovered!! Exciting.

confirm one of the most dramatic predictions of Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
