*New mysteries surround New Horizons next flyby target NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft won’t be reaching its next target until January first 2019 – but the Kuiper Belt object, 2014 MU69, is already revealing some surprises. New data indicates MU69 may actually be less than 20 kilometres wide. Furthermore it may actually be a binary system or even a swarm of smaller bodies left from the time when the planets first formed.
*First ever supermassive black hole binary discovered Astronomers have for the first time ever discovered two supermassive black holes orbiting each other in a single galaxy. The detection provides new clues about the process of galaxy mergers and galactic evolution.
*Earth's magnetic field reveals one of its secrets Scientists have identified previously unknown patterns in the Earth's magnetic field which seems to evolve over time scales on the order of a thousand years. The pattern -- known as paleomagnetic secular variation -- provides new insights into how the planetary magnetic field works by adding a measure of predictability to changes in the field not previously known.
*Russia’s busy launch schedule Russia has been making up for lost time – and missions – since last year’s grounding of its Proton Rocket with no less than six launches in recent months. Included in the manifest was a Soyuz flight carrying crew to the International Space Station and the launch of a top secret Russian military satellite.
Here are the videos for the Soyuz launch story… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdS7xrP6xG8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8ykwb0X0m0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB4cbr9M5aE
