Witches in space! NASA Instagrams a spooky nebula

It being Halloween and all, NASA yesterday decided to take its Instagram account on a somewhat spooky turn. The space agency posted a striking image of the Witch Head nebula, a collection of gas and stars that resembles the profile of a Wizard of Oz-style witch’s face. It’s even green!

But don’t get too scared: the nebula is located hundreds of light years from Earth, somewhere off Orion’s knee. [Source: NASA Instagram]

No Android KitKat for Samsung Galaxy Nexus

If you’re the owner of Google’s first Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, get ready for some ill tidings: you won’t be able to update its OS to Android 4.4 KitKat. The latest version of the operating system, which will debut on the new Nexus 5 and roll out to all other Nexus-branded devices within the next couple of weeks, isn’t coming to the Samsung-built phone according to a Google support page – perhaps the hardware just isn’t beefy enough to handle the new features?

Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Will Ferrell are all voicing characters in The Lego Movie, which looks to be very much in the vein of recent Pixar and Dreamworks comedies (yes, it’s CG that’s been given a decidedly stop motion-esque look). Check out the first official trailer above.
