Hunting from a distance of 27,000 light years, astronomers have
discovered an unusual carbon-based molecule—one with a branched
structure—contained within a giant gas cloud in interstellar space. Like
finding a molecular needle in a cosmic haystack, astronomers have
detected radio waves…

a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…

UPDATE!!

My principal decided to join him in a photo.

The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.

Black holes cannot actually exist, according to mathematical proofThe scientific world is left reeling after a researcher offers breakthrough mathematical proof.

“According to her calculations, when a star collapses under its own gravity, it produces the Hawking radiation that scientists have observed. But, she argues, as the star gives off this radiation it also sheds mass. So much mass is shed, in fact, that the star loses density, and the formation of a black hole is prevented. Stars do not meet their death by collapsing into black holes, according to the proof. Rather, they swell one last time and then explode.”  
I recommend this other article (a little less sensationalist), written by an astrophycisist, about the Laura Mersini-Houghton paper : 
"This is interesting theoretical work, and it raises questions about the formation of stellar-mass black holes. But it doesn’t prove that stellar-mass black holes don’t exist, nor does it say anything about intermediate mass or supermassive black holes, which would form by processes other than stellar collapse. And of course the work depends upon Hawking’s take on firewalls to be correct, which hasn’t been proven. To say that this work proves black holes don’t exist is disingenuous at best" .
