The human family tree, as we know it now. A new, improved sequencing of ancient human relative genomes reveals that Homo sapiens didn't only have sex with Neanderthals and a little-understood line of humans called Denisovans. A fourth, mystery lineage of humans was in the mix, too. We don't know who that 4th group of ancestors are yet but we'll find them eventually.

his image shows a supernova within the galaxy M100. It may contain the youngest known black hole in our neck of the cosmic woods. The supernova, called SN 1979C, is labeled at the bottom, just left of center. Its remnants resulted in a black hole that's calculated by scientists to be approximately 30 years old.
A black hole is “born” out of an exploding star. When a very massive star exhausts its nuclear fuel it explodes as a supernova. The outer parts of the star are expelled violently into space, while the core completely collapses under its own weight. If the core remaining after the supernova is very massive (more than 2.5 times the mass of the Sun), no known repulsive force inside a star can push back hard enough to prevent gravity from completely collapsing the core into a black hole.

The Neandertal in us January 11, 2011 The Neandertal, the enigmatic Stone Age man who appears to have vanished without a trace from the earth 30,000 years ago, lives on in modern humans. Each of us carries up to four percent of Neandertal genes.
After identifying the unique Neanderthal genes, through fossilized Neanderthal bones, a search was done within modern Homo sapien dna and it was found that 4% of us had traces of Neanderthal dna. The Neanderthal, thought to be extinct, survives in us.

Using the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have taken this long look at the core of our Milky Way galaxy, some 26,000 light-years away. The spectacular false-color view spans about 130 light-years. It reveals an energetic region rich in x-ray sources and high-lighted by the central source, Sagittarius A*, known to be a supermassive black hole with 3 million times the mass of the Sun. Given its tremendous mass, Sagittarius A* is amazingly faint in x-rays

These two skeletons from the Neolithic period have been discovered by archaeologists near Mantua in Italy and are beleived to be young lovers due to the presence of all the teeth. The Location of their eternal embrace was just 25 miles south of Verona, the city where Shakespeare’s love story Romeo and Juliet was set.
