*Third gravitational wave detection Astronomers have confirmed that gravitational waves from colliding black holes have been detected for a third time. Gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of space-time caused by events such as the collision or merger of very massive objects such as black holes and neutron stars.

*Juno mission reveals a whole new Jupiter The first science results from NASA’s Juno mission are portraying Jupiter as a complex and turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, and plunging storm systems travelling deep into the planet’s heart. Scientists also found that the solar system’s largest planet has a mammoth, lumpy magnetic field that may indicate it was generated closer to the planet’s surface than previously thought.

*Halos discovered on Mars widen time frame for potential life NASA’s Curiosity rover has detected high concentrations of silica halos in bedrock – indicating that the red planet had liquid water much longer than previously thought. The new findings dramatically widen the time frame for potential Martian life to have evolved.
