New image of colliding galaxies previews the fate of the Milky Way :: WRAL.com

By Ashley Strickland, CNN A new telescope image showcases two entangled galaxies that will eventually merge into one millions of years from now — and previews the eventual, similar fate of our own Milky Way galaxy. The Gemini North telescope, located on the summit of Maunakea in Hawaii, spotted the interacting spiral galaxies about 60 …

New image of colliding galaxies previews the fate of the Milky Way

The Gemini North telescope, located on the summit of Maunakea in Hawaii, spotted the interacting spiral galaxies about 60 million light-years away in the Virgo constellation. The galactic pair NGC 4567 and NGC 4568, also known as the Butterfly galaxies, have just begun to collide as gravity pulls them together. In 500 million years, the …

James Webb Space Telescope captures its first image of the most distant known star in the universe

An image of the most distant known star in the universe has been captured by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Named Earendel, after a character in J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ prequel ‘The Silmarillion’, it is almost 28 billion light-years away from Earth. That is over 10 billion light-years more distant than the next-furthest …

“An engine for the imagination”: an interview with David Holz, CEO of AI image generator Midjourney

AI-generated artwork is quietly beginning to reshape culture. Over the last few years, the ability of machine learning systems to generate imagery from text prompts has increased dramatically in quality, accuracy, and expression. Now, these tools are moving out of research labs and into the hands of everyday users, where they’re creating new visual languages …
