Nobel Prize 2020 in Physics awarded to Penrose, Genzel and Ghez for findings in cosmology, black holes
Half the award was shared between two researchers that helped discover that every galaxy is home to a supermassive black hole.
A black hole 85 times the sun's mass, and a second, 66 solar masses, collided. The result was a black hole 142 times as massive as the sun.

The discovery suggests that planets may actually be capable of surviving the formation of a white dwarf.
Glimpse of our system once the Sun is dead? First Jupiter-sized exoplanet found orbiting white dwarf star
Past research has indicated that some white dwarf stars can retain some of the more distant remnants of their planetary systems.
A chemically-synthesized bioweapon and agricultural fumigant, phosphine in also naturally made by some anaerobic microbes in low oxygen environments.
SpaceX's megaconstellation also sets a precedent for other companies to follow suit with their own, without considering the needs of the astronomy community, say experts.
While Chandra captures X-rays in the outflow of stellar explosions in some images, Hubble throws light on galaxies.
The 'potentially hazardous asteroid' called '2011 ES4' will be at a distance of 1.2 lakh kms from Earth at its closest.
The rare sighting is an opportunity to see the birth of a comet as it starts to become active, researchers say.
Black Moon on 19 August: Invisible fourth 'New Moon' in Northern Hemisphere appears due to calendar quirk

The mystery has enthralled skywatchers since the star began to lose brightness, and fast, in October 2019.
The 'baby' galaxy was discovered using the powerful ALMA radio telescope in Chile, using a technique called gravitational lensing.
Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight: Interesting facts, tips to spot the year's best meteor shower display
Following the faint Delta Aquariids meteor shower in July come the Perseids, which is arguably the best and brightest meteor shower throughout the year.
Once thought to be an asteroid, Ceres' unexplained bright spots kept scientists curious to know more.
To study the boundary of interstellar space, scientists studied cosmic rays moving towards Earth from different parts of the galaxy.
Observations from Dome A were two and a half times better than other good observation spots in Chile or Hawaii.
The 14-year-olds discovered the asteroid during the two-month-long nationwide ‘All India Asteroid Search Campaign 2020’ organised by SPACE India and IASC.
