Heaviest neutron star to date is a ’black widow’ eating its mate
A spinning neutron star periodically swings its radio (green) and gamma-ray (magenta) beams past Earth in this artist's concept of a black widow pulsar. The neutron star/pulsar heats the facing side of its stellar partner (right) to temperatures twice as hot as the sun's surface and slowly evaporates it.

Space rocket junk could have deadly consequences unless governments act
Space rocket junk could have deadly consequences unless governments act
Science, Health & Technology Alex Walls The re-entry of abandoned stages of rockets left in orbit from space launches have a six to 10 per cent chance of severely injuring or killing a human being in the next decade, according to a new UBC study. Researchers say governments need to take collective action and mandate that rocket stages are guided safely back to Earth after their use, which could increase the cost of a launch, but potentially save lives.
