Hubble Space Telescope Captures Holiday Globe of a Billion Stars in Galaxy UGC 8091

Hubble Holiday Globe Billion Stars Galaxy UGC 8091
NASA / ESA’s Hubble Space Telescope captures a holiday globe of a billion stars in galaxy UGC 8091 located 7 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Virgo. This is classified as an “irregular galaxy” due to its lack of an orderly spiral or elliptical appearance, and in this case, resembles a tangle of string lights.



Some of these irregular galaxies may have become tangled by tumultuous internal activity, while others were caused by interactions with neighboring galaxies. This isn’t just one image, but rather a composite, as Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys were used to collect the data from 2006 to 2021.

Twelve camera filters were combined to produce this image, with light from the mid-ultraviolet through to the red end of the visible spectrum. The red patches are likely interstellar hydrogen molecules that are glowing because they have been excited by the light from hot, energetic stars. The other sparkles on show in this image are a mix of older stars. An array of distant, diverse galaxies appear in the background, captured by Hubble’s sharp view,” said NASA Hubble Mission Team.

Nintendo Holiday Training Video from 1993 Shows Rare Certificate of Achievement

Nintendo Holiday Training Video from 1993 Shows Rare Certificate of Achievement

Nintendo Holiday Training Video 1993
Many things happened during 1993 for Nintendo including the release of the live-action Super Mario Bros. movie on May 28 and the launch of a top-loading NES console five months later. As the holidays drew near, the company released a training video that gave a glimpse of their rarely seen certificate of achievement.



Some of the notable Nintendo game releases in 1993 include The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Game Boy), Star Fox (Super Nintendo Entertainment System), Kirby’s Adventure (NES), and Super Mario All-Stars, the latter of which contained the first version of the previously Japan-exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. We also can’t forget that Nintendo took part in the United States congressional hearings on video games, where Mortal Kombat and Night Trap were brought up.

Apple Releases Stop-Motion ‘Fuzzy Feelings’ Holiday Short Film Shot on iPhone 15 Pro Max

Apple Releases Stop-Motion ‘Fuzzy Feelings’ Holiday Short Film Shot on iPhone 15 Pro Max

Apple Stop-Motion Fuzzy Feelings Short Film iPhone 15 Pro Max
Apple has just released their ‘Fuzzy Feelings’ holiday short film, which was shot on the iPhone 15 Pro Max and at least partially edited on an M2 MacBook Air. The message it hopes to convey is that creativity has the power to change the way we see each other, and the world.



Sometimes, all you need is to see things through a new lens to really discover the meaning of the holidays. ‘Fuzzy Feelings’ is centered around a young woman who is an office worker by day and stop-motion artist by night. It switches between live-action and stop-motion imagery, as viewers see her process challenges at work through the stop motion film. For those wondering exactly how it was created, Apple also released a behind-the-scenes featurette (below).
