The huge team behind the Event Horizon Telescope already made news with their first image of a black hole. But they've got bigger ambitions.
One of the oldest known annual meteor showers, peaking early this week, may unfortunately be hindered by an almost-full moon.
A solid metallic core nearly as large as Earth's might be lurking deep within the solar system's smallest planet.
