Phew! Thanks to new data from ESO's Very Large #Telescope, we now know that a white dwarf that was set for a close encounter with our Solar System in 29000 years isn't actually headed our way. Turns out that the intense magnetic field of the #star had biased the previous measurements of the approach speed. You're welcome everyone! 😉
We have a new post in our Blog article series illuminating 🪔the #science background 👩🏻🔬 👨🏾🔬 of ##ESAEuclid 🛰️ and the techniques we'll employ for high-precision #cosmology: "Measuring the Universe with Baryon Acoustic Oscillations?"

I love also Olympus and Arsia Mons on the Terminator!
Galactic collisions result in a billion-year gravitational dance, as shown in this captivating supercomputer simulation. The simulation depicts the collision of two spiral galaxies and is complemented by actual images of galactic collisions at various stages captured by Hubble.
Hello People Making Games! Just moved myself over from another instance, so I figure that warrants an #introduction
Hi! I'm Chase! I'm a web developer that dabbles in making games!
I've had a lot of fun playing around with #Pico8, and lately I've started a new project in #Godot (see attached gif). I made a couple wordle clones -- https://lingule.xyz/ (for langages) and https://novle.xyz/ (for books)
I'll try to post game dev related stuff, but honestly I'll mostly probably talk about my kids' wacky antics.
Was the SpaceX Starship’s launch a failure or a success?
Ars Technica says "For those who know a bit more about the launch industry and the iterative design methodology, getting the Super Heavy rocket and Starship upper stage off the launch pad was a huge success." The company's development process is messier, but it's also much faster, says author Eric Berger.

The NASA engineers are amazing.
For the #nerds out there, you can find out about Voyager’s current mission status here: https://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/mission/status/
Deep within interstellar cloud CB 130-3, a dense knot of gas and dust teeters on the edge of collapse. When it goes, it will become a new star.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk: “oi, I’ve got an idea, why don’t I launch my fucking car into space for shits, giggles, and PR?”
Everyone: “ooh, he’s so smart, he will save us all”
