* History as astronomers see the birth of a black hole For the first time in history, astronomers have watched as a massive, dying star collapsed and was reborn as a black hole. The star, which was 25 times as massive as the Sun, should have exploded in a very bright core collapse or type 2 supernova. 

*New Zealand’s launches new rocket into space New Zealand has hosted the maiden flight of the new Electron rocket. However, things didn’t go quite to plan for the inaugural mission with the launch vehicle failing to reach orbit. 

*Skywatch June We turn our eyes to the skies for June skywatch with the marvel at the majesty of the Milky Way as it puts on a spectacular overhead display. June also marks the Winter Solstice in the southern Hemisphere and the start of Summer north of the equator.
