NASA and ISA's new space observatory helps solve mystery of supermassive black holes

Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) launched last December as a collaboration between the U.S. Space agency NASA and the Italian Space Agency. The researchers studied an exotic object called a blazar at the center of a large elliptical galaxy named Markarian 501 located about 460 million light years away from Earth in the direction of the constellation Hercules.

NASA Moon mission 'exceeding' expectations

The spacecraft is to take astronauts to the Moon in the coming years -- the first to set foot on its surface since the last Apollo mission in 1972. The spacecraft's four solar panels, about 13 feet (four meters) long, deployed correctly and are providing more energy than expected, NASA officials say. Orion is already some 200,000 miles (320,000 kilometers) from Earth and preparing to perform the first of four main thrusts.

Carbon dioxide emissions rising globally, but drop in China - The Washington Post

Global carbon pollution is still increasing, but it isn’t increasing at as fast a rate as 10 or 15 years ago. Scientists say this is bad news because it is pushing Earth closer to hitting and then passing the globally adopted threshold of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit)
