Using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, a team of astronomers led by the team from US space agency’s Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland has identified a Jupiter-like huge planet that orbits two Suns simultaneously. Situated in the constellation Cygnus, Kepler-1647b is 3,700 light-years away and approximately 4.4 billion years old – roughly the same age as the Earth – and orbits a binary-star system. Kepler-1647b is a gas giant, making the planet unlikely to host life. .....

On December 26, 2015, the LIGO detectors at Hanford in Washington and at Livingston in Louisiana detected a signal from the coalescence of two black holes, with masses 14 and eight times the mass of Sun. They merged into a single, more massive, rapidly rotating black hole that is about 21 times the mass of Sun. The event took place 1.4 billion years ago, lasted in LIGO’s frequency band for about a second, and released about 1 solar mass worth of energy in that short period. For compar .....
