A spectacular @ESO VLT image of the the triplet of galaxies NGC 6769 (right), 6770 (left) and NGC 6771( bottom). The triplet is also referred to as "Devil's Mask". It is at a distance of about 190 million light-years.

More images of @NASA_SLS taken around the Umbilical Release and Retract Test (URRT) inside High Bay 3 in the Vehicle Assembly Building. Teams will continue tests inside the building before transporting @NASA_Orion and stacking it atop the SLS, completing assembly for Artemis I.

Sad to hear that Clive Sinclair has died. The ZX81 was my introduction to computing and I loved it! Started out with a 1k version and eventually saved up for a 16k ram pack - thank you Clive !
A lot has happened since our #GW150914 discovery. 6 years, and 50 confirmed detections (and watch out for more coming soon!..), and our #GravitationalWaves family portrait is getting very crowded! For much more about our latest catalog #GWTC2, see ligo.org/detections/O3a…

Got any plans for 2037? A supernova “replay” is expected to appear in about 16 years, thanks to the magnification and splitting of light caused by the gravity from an enormous galaxy cluster that lies between us and the faraway supernova: go.nasa.gov/3zbJ666

Finally got the telescope out after a summer of crutches and clouds; had forgotten the sheer amount of rigmarole, but after 3 hours of set-up, finally got to taking pictures again. Andromeda and the Heart Nebula here.

A beautiful image from @ESO 's Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the pair of galaxies NGC 799 (below) and NGC 800 (above). This pair is located at a distance of about 300 million light-years from Earth. The two galaxies may collide in a few hundred million years.

Just did my last @BBC6Music chat with @shaunwkeaveny - we started in 2008 and I’ve loved doing it. A pretty sad day to be honest. We will be continuing those chats somewhere in the broadcasting ether, that’s for sure, because it’s been wonderful ….
Off to Bracknell tonight for the second 'work in progress' date of Horizons. I've added a bit on black hole powered starships for a laugh.
If you read Jones’ research proposal (linked in link), this image could turn out to open the road to a new physics. Way outside my competence zone, but sounds cool. twitter.com/spacetelelive/…

Excited to be starting a bit of an Odyssey - 18 months of live shows from Dunedin to Svalbard and everywhere in between starts tonight in Exeter - work in progress and it’ll probably last about 5 hours because I want to talk about too much physics … sorry Exeter.
I promise all our fans that we’ll tidy ourselves up before the next season of @themonkeycage twitter.com/dannywallace/s…
This evening, I’ve favourably compared the Dads Army episode ‘Getting the Bird’ to the finest Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes because of its pleasing logical structure. Not everyone in my house agrees. I stand by my view.

A view of #Neptune captured by NASA's Voyager 2 on August 13, 1989 from a distance of about 17.2 million kilometers (10.6 million miles). This was made from a single narrow-angle camera image captured with the blue spectral filter and colored to an approximate natural visible hue

I'm working away on my book on Black Holes with @jrf1968 and just wrote the rather disturbing sounding sentence : "Big Dot no more falls through her own feet than you fall through your own face when you walk towards a mirror" Stay tuned ......
If you’re in Canada, this is me chatting away in the Royal Institution, looking back on my TV shows and musing about the Meaning of Life … which is pretty much all I do these days. I’d make a film about it if @EricIdle hadn’t already done it. twitter.com/bbcstudiospres…

I'm celebrating my 9th landiversary on Mars. In 2012, I hit the ground running. I've traveled a total of 16.3 mi (26.3 km), climbed 1,509 ft (460 m) in elevation & collected 32 drilled samples. Time flies when you’re doing science. Thanks for riding along! go.nasa.gov/3xs89RE

DO IT Channel 4! Hire @shaunwkeaveny for the new Big Breakfast. Then I can do a quantum mechanics and relativity slot every Wednesday, thus contributing to the valuable public service remit of the channel and raising the general level of intellectual discourse in the country. twitter.com/shaunwkeaveny/…
Be more Georgian ! Yes. It was also a period when science, art and literature dovetailed to create magnificent intellectual progress, as celebrated in Richard Holmes’s superb book ‘The Age of Wonder: How the romantic generation discovered the beauty and terror of science’. twitter.com/rupertmyers/st…

I sometimes enjoy receiving spam emails. Today’s was addressed to ‘Dear Mr Proven Solution ….’ I might take that as a stage name. Obviously I’ll cut them in on the IP. By the way, as I was typing this tweet my spell checker changed ‘obviously’ to ‘ovipositor’. Strange morning.
Unlikely, but wouldn’t it be magnificent if there was a tiny primordial black hole in our solar system. Because then we could visit it - even though, as the article says, it would be the size of a grapefruit … so not exactly ‘Interstellar’ … but still …. twitter.com/alberteinstein…
