Contributed byAhead of his new show, , premiering on in early February, veteran animator Craig McCracken hopped on a phone call with SYFY WIRE that included sugar, spice, everything nice, and a dash of Chemical X. That's because The Powerpuff Girls creator gave us his exclusive thoughts on from Jennifer's Body writer, .

A billion galaxies lurk in a 10 trillion pixel map of the sky

A billion galaxies lurk in a 10 trillion pixel map of the sky

Contributed byThe sky is big. If you want to map it in detail, you have to think big, too.Astronomers are good at that. A massive international team has just released a sky survey so huge that I'm having a hard time grasping it.The map is the culmination of six years with 1405 nights of observations, three telescopes (and one space telescope), and one supercomputer cranking away at the data… because the survey has a total of 10 trillion pixels, and makes up a petabyte of data — a thousand terabytes, or a million gigabytes.Oh, it also has over a billion galaxies in it. A. Billion.Like I...

Need a friend? Help's on the way, with eerily lifelike 'social robots' heading to market this year

Contributed byBesides the obvious carnage of the pandemic, there's little doubt that the pandemic has taken a toll on people's mental health as well. Humans are social creatures by nature, even the most misanthropic of us, and isolation has been hard to take for many. So in that regard, it's hard to argue against utilizing robotics' for a little socializing during isolated times. That's certainly what Hanson Robotics is hoping for, as the company has big plans for a mass roll out of "thousands" of "social robots" this year. According to , it plans on shipping out four distinct models in the...

Was early Mars wet and warm, or dry and cold? Yes.

Was early Mars wet and warm, or dry and cold? Yes.

Contributed byWe know there's water on Mars. And lots of it.Thing is, it's frozen. With the polar caps, and under the surface even down to mid-latitudes, when you talk Martian water you're talking ice.While , if you want copious liquid water on the surface then you need to time travel, back to, oh, say, 3 billion years ago (better or ). Back then there was quite a bit of surface water, the evidence of which is still around today. , , even hints of ocean shorelines… all these imply that back then Mars had a thicker atmosphere and plentiful water.Video of Mars: Crash Course Astronomy #15That...
