*Strange rare galaxy discovered Astronomers have found an unusual ring galaxy unlike anything ever seen before. The galaxy appears to include a well-defined elliptical-like core surrounded by two circular rings.

*The universe’s most powerful cosmic particle accelerator discovered Two of the most powerful phenomena in the universe, a supermassive black hole and the collision of giant galaxy clusters, have combined to create one of the most powerful cosmic particle accelerators ever seen. The spectacle is showing scientists what happens when matter ejected by a giant black hole is swept up in the merger of two enormous galaxy clusters.

*Discovery of the missing link between pulsars and magnetars Astronomers have found the missing link between neutron star pulsars and highly magnetic neutron stars known as magnetars. The study is based on the discovery of a neutron star called PSR J1119 -6127which appears to be in a never before seen transition phase between pulsar and magnetar.

*First results from the Parkes telescope’s latest search for ET Breakthrough Listen – a ten year 100 million dollar astronomical search for intelligent life beyond Earth has announced its first observations using the CSIRO’s Parkes Radio Telescope. The project was launched in 2015 by theoretical physicist and Internet entrepreneur Yuri Milner together with fellow physicist Stephen Hawking.

*World’s highest capacity broadband satellite launched A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket has successfully blasted into orbit carrying the EchoStar XIX telecommunications satellite. The new bird will be the world’s highest capacity broadband satellite providing increased high speed internet services across North America
