Darkness.com ☥'s curator insight, February 11, 2015 5:41 PM

Aww, look how tiny Spider-Man is in comparison with those two giants. Sigh. Iron Man has all the money, Captain America is a military superhuman experiment; but realistically, Spider-Man is an equal. He can't -fly- like Iron Man, but he gets around in much the same way, through the air, so he might as well. Ad, like Captain America, he has been genetically altered.


So he might be rich or endowed with government experimentative medical upgrades, but he's still awesome. I'd like to see more Spider-Man in the movies, so I'm ready. Let's do it. Coming in 2017, --some sort of unnamed Spider-Man movie. Woohoo.

Stunning New 1.5 BILLION Pixel Photograph Of Andromeda Galaxy Released | IFLScience | Tech-Geekery | Scoop.it
The Hubble Space Telescope has been used to take a 1.5 billion pixel image of the Andromeda Galaxy. You can see an overview of the image above, but that doesn't do the full image justice. Most monitors display less than a million pixels, so when you look at the whole image you are probably losing more than 99.9% of the resolution.
