Galaxies like colorful pieces of candy fill the
Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2014.
The dimmest galaxies are more than 10 billion times fainter than
stars visible to the unaided eye and represent the
the extreme past, a few 100 million years after the
The image itself
was made with the significant addition
of ultraviolet data to the Hubble Ultra Deep Field,
an update of Hubble's
most distant gaze toward the southern constellation of Fornax.
It now covers the entire range of wavelengths available to
Hubble's cameras, from ultraviolet through visible to near-infrared.
Ultraviolet data adds the crucial capability of studying
star formation in the
Deep Field galaxies between 5 and 10 billion light-years distant.

In 1986, Cleveland was desperate to put the nickname “Mistake by the Lake” behind them, so they tried to set a world record for a balloon release. Balloonfest takes us through the failures.
UK eye surgeon Rupal Morjaria was poised to operate on a 67-year-old patient when he discovered a “blueish mass” that turned out to be 17 old, lost contact lenses that had fused together; he then recovered 10 more loose, floating lenses from her eye.
“My name is T. Chase and I am a cloud shrinker.” “Please excuse the strange sounding voice, it is necessary to speak like a low tone “humming” sound to get the proper brainwaves for cloud psychokinesis.” Question for meteorologists and, of course, engineers: what would the energy requirements be, roughly, to shrink a randomly shaped […]
The current web development landscape is rife with buzzwords and technology that gets abandoned almost as soon as it’s made. If you’ve never written a line of code before, it can be hard to figure out what’s coming, what’s here to stay, or how to get ahead.This Beginner Web Development Bundle is a great place […]
The Fader Stealth Quadcopter from TRNDlabs packs incredible flight performance into a package small enough to land on your phone screen, and it’s available now in the Boing Boing Store.The Fader’s six-axis gyroscope module gives it perfect balance in the air. This makes the onboard 720p HD camera all the better for shooting amazing flight […]
Although fully autonomous vehicles aren’t yet allowed on public streets, they are poised to dominate the roads in the not-too-distant future. But before that happens, Apple, Google, Uber, and other companies now investing in self-driving tech are going to need talented developers that can account for the dizzying array of factors at play when a […]
