The image above shows a gamma burst from a star which exploded when the universe was only 630 million years old, about 13 billion years ago. And you thought some of your snapshots were old.
This image shows that complicated stars were forming even in this relatively early period in the universe’s history.

Slap the name “Twilight” or “New Moon” on something and people come running. Fans of this franchise are vampiric in their quest for anything and everything related to their beloved universe. And makers of the soundtrack CD for New Moon have just discovered that.
The soundtrack album opened at #1 on the album charts and that’s even before the movie has been released. The album includes the songs featured in the film, including artists such as Death Cab for Cuties, Band of Skulls, The Killers and Thom Yorke.
The sightings of mysterious large black cats is one of the more intriguing phenomena in the world of cryptozoology. And it’s one we find particularly intriguing. Here’s the lastest report of such a sighting from Agence France-Presse:
A BLACK panther sighted in northeast France several weeks ago, and last seen in Belgium in September, was possibly spotted in neighbouring Luxembourg over the weekend, police said today.
“Police were alerted Sunday at 3.30pm by a lady who saw a black panther in an industrial zone in Bascharage,” a small community in southwest Luxembourg, spokesman Vic Reuter said.
“We sent out several patrols with dog handlers, and a police helicopter with a thermal camera searched for several hours but we couldn’t find anything,” he said, adding that the hunt was abandoned in the late afternoon.
He said police were taking the sighting “very seriously”, given that a similar animal had been seen in the Ardennes region not far away in Belgium.
This is one of the most interesting things about these sightings: Police and other officials still take them seriously.
The panther hunt began on August 24, when a large wild cat was first spotted by hikers in woods in the Meurthe-et-Moselle region of northeast France.
Tracks at the site were found to be those of a “great cat, probably a black panther,” according to French hunting and wild fauna office (ONCFS).
Around a dozen further sightings occurred in France, including one by a natural sciences teacher which was thought to be very credible.
No circuses or zoos have reported such an animal missing, and officials believe the cat might have been raised by a person living in the area.
We don’t know what these sightings are: Misidentification, an unknown species, some form of paranormal occurrence, or something we haven’t even thought of yet. But, whatever they are, they keep us interested from story to story.
Sorry, not really. Well, not yet anyway. Rather we’re referring to the filmmakers of the upcoming film The House of Devil. They’re hosting a special event on Twitter this Halloween.

Not the most revolutionary use of Twitter. But we’ve become so intrigued in the film thanks to its wonderful posters. (You can see one of the best ones above. Take a gander at the rest here.) So we might take a look.
The Paramount released low-budget shocker Paranormal Activity had another strong weekend at the Box Office. In it’s widest release so far (1,915 screens), PA not only saw a 12.1% increase in box office but took the top place at the box office with $22 million, smashing it’s nearest competitor Saw VI which only brought in $14.8 million in its opening weekend. This is more impressive news for the low budget horror community.
Screenwriter/Creator of the Scream franchise Kevin Williamson debunks rumors that Scream 4 will be in 3D. And he did it via Twitter. His first tweet, posted on the 24th, had this to say:
What is this Scream 4 in 3D? First I heard of it.
Then an hour later he added:
Guys? Really? 3D? Nahhhhh.
So that’s that settled. You can follow Williamson on Twitter here.
