Astronomers Discover The Brightest Quasar In The Early Universe

The discovery was presented at the 233rd meeting of the American Astronomical Society and will be published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. The object discovered …

Wife? Check. Kids? Check. Two left feet? Check. Check. Australian PM in #shoegate

(CNN)What should have been a heartwarming photo of the Australian Prime Minister posing with his wife and kids has brought out the best in Aussie banter, thanks to one minor problem: the image showed the PM, Scott Morrison, with two left feet. The leader’s spokesman told Reuters the image was changed by staff without Morrison’s knowledge or authorization. Despite the attempts at damage control, Morrison was mocked online for the blunder. Some took up the challenge and focused on the …

50 years later Woodstock is coming back and its mission is more relevant than ever.

Photo by Henry Diltz used with permission. In 1969, America was fiercely divided by war and politics that fractured relationships between the genders, races, and generations. People took to the streets to push back against a ruling class who blocked the halls to progress. Sound familiar? Fashion, technology, music and how they felt at a specific moment can never truly be replicated. But there are eras that share undeniable similarities because they are animated by similar passions and challenges. 1969 …

Video surfaces of Trump giving advice for getting over a concrete wall in 2004. Seriously.

For every Trump statement, there’s an equal and opposite previous statement. It’s basically scientific law that for everything our current president says, something he previously said directly counters or contradicts it. The people of the internet have made a game out of finding Trump tweets that don’t age well (here are 31 examples, just for funsies) and one entrepreneur even created now-sold-out flip flops with contradicting Trump tweets printed on them. Good times, America! “I wanted to highlight this hypocrisy,” …

Weird ‘Sub-Neptune’ Exoplanet Discovered by NASA (And It May Not Be Alone)

The world, known as HD 21749b, is a weirdo, at least by the standards of our own solar system. It’s a “sub-Neptune” about three times bigger than Earth, which means it’s likely gaseous rather than rocky. But HD 21749b is made of denser stuff than the gaseous worlds we’re used to, because it’s 23 times more massive than Earth. [NASA’s TESS Exoplanet-Hunting Mission in Pictures] “We think this planet wouldn’t be as gaseous as Neptune or Uranus, which are mostly …
