The ‘Peekaboo’ Galaxy Emerges From Hiding, and It’s a Time Capsule of the Universe

A galaxy that has taunted astronomers since they first detected a hint of its presence more than 20 years ago has finally come out of hiding. It’s called HIPASS J1131-31, or Peekaboo, and it’s located just 22 million light-years away. And it was so hard to see because it’s tiny and obscured by a bright …

Hi! A strange little galaxy gives a glimpse of the beginnings of the universe

Astronomers have discovered that a strange dwarf galaxy that has been hidden for years in our cosmic neighborhood seems to belong to the early universe, although it was formed more recently. The tiny galaxy measuring just 1,200 light-years in diameter was given the nickname ‘Peekaboo’ because it was hidden in the bright glare of a …

How the Galaxy S23 Ultra will break my vicious iPhone cycle (and why it’s so hard to quit using Apple’s phones in favor of Android)

Who knew I would become an iPhone user? And not only that, but also in the long term. I certainly didn’t. Five years ago I was happy with my large, fairly basic mid-range Xiaomi Mi Max 2 smartphone, and Apple’s iPhones seemed like overpriced, polished, but fairly unimpressive options that people were choosing purely for …

Astronomers spot the largest galaxy ever, and the scale will break your brain

Astronomers spot the largest galaxy ever, and the scale will break your brain

Earlier this year, astronomers found an absolute monster of a galaxy. Hidden some 3 billion light-years away, Alcyoneus is a giant radio galaxy reaching 5 megaparsecs in space. It’s 16.3 million light-years long, and it is the largest known structure of galactic origin. This discovery sheds light on our poor understanding of these colossi and …
