This truly is INCREDIBLE news. The first image ever of a black hole! This black hole is at the center of a nearby galaxy called M87 and was chosen because it’s a supermassive black hole (as opposed to the black hole at the center of our Milky Way, which is much smaller).

At the rate astronomers keep discovering these distant objects, we’re gonna end up with A LOT of fars in their names!

Did you hear the news? For the first time ever, scientists successfully landed a lander (Chang’e 4) and a rover (Yutu 2) on the far side of the moon!!

The “dark side” of the moon is a misnomer. It gets light, but since the moon is tidally locked we never get to see its far side. But I still like to think of it as it’s “dark” side 😉

You can read more about this mission and watch some really cool footage taken from the lander here:
