Like my previous artistic endeavors, I’m keen to connect the traditionally modeled nudes to images of deep space, playing with light, shapes, and colours. Last time, I ended up having a mostly queer cohort of models by accident, but this time it was by design… the reason is after the break. The credit for the […]
Another #MuseumsfromHome with a space twist! This time, it's all about a curious science relic, the middle finger of Italian scientist Galileo Galilei
We have finally got an image of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way!
How About That?
“Everyone always wants to turn the earth in a black hole! Instead, COULD YOU turn it into a neutron star?”
Ooooh! I like this question! Chris is right, black holes hold the fascination of many as the densest objects in the universe, but the “humble” neutron stars shouldn’t be considered the offsprings of a lesser god.
Last week, in a matter of a few days, two studies came out that brought with them a completely different perspective on our Moon. The first one, published in Nature Geoscience, was about an alternative hypothesis on the formation of our natural satellite. The (now) traditional scenario suggests that an object the size of Mars, […]
Pride in STEM
Yesterday some of us attended the London Science March (I would say about 20 but I’m not really sure as I didn’t get a chance to chat with everyone who I believe was with us). It was an exciting and exhilarating experience, and I’m glad I went! So, was the March for Science perfect? Hell […]
The Astroholic Explains
We don’t know and will likely never know what happened before the Big Bang, but Chris is curious about it, so we take a journey in the land before time and space!

An Australian-Italian team has discovered a peculiar cosmic object that resembles a giant jellyfish stretching over 1.2 million light-years through the galaxy cluster A2877. The discovery of this structure was possible thanks the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and it is reported in The Astrophysical Journal.
A brief timelapse of the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on March 3, 2023, as they come into view in the London dusk. The two planets are less than one degree part in the sky. 🤩
