In a galaxy far, far away, there’s a place beyond the reach of science (no, not Endor), a place where the way we perceive and even think about the Universe falls apart (no, really, not Endor). I am, of course, talking about a supermassive black hole. A cosmic monster that’s crammed 6.5 billion times more matter than our Sun contains into an area so small, it doesn’t actually have spatial dimensions. The consequence of this cosmic crunch is that nothing, not even light, can escape its pull. And yet, last month, a global team of scientists announced they had managed to capture an image of this black hole at the heart of the galaxy M87. They had gathered and weaved together light that left the outer reaches of this…

eye opener

Hang in there YASUNI NATIONAL PARK , ECUADOR Having a bad day? Then spare a thought for this caterpillar. It’s been eaten from the inside out by braconid wasp larvae, seen here pupating inside their cocoons, dangling from the caterpillar via silk threads.The parasitic wasps use needle-like ‘ovipositors’ at the base of their abdomen to pierce their victim – usually a caterpillar – and deposit eggs inside the body. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae use their host as food until they break through and begin the process of spinning their cocoons and pupating into adult wasps. Incredibly, this caterpillar was still alive when the photo was taken. Apparently, some wasps keep the host alive on purpose, to deter predators from attacking the cocoons. Sonic boom…

letter of the month

New subscriber I have long been a subscriber to New Scientist, but over the last few years it had become increasingly political. I fancied a change and last week I picked up a copy of Science Focus.

I myself would not take supplements without a strong evidence base, but as a scientist I recognise the value of unbiased and accurate reporting – so for me you’re ticking all the right boxes. I also happen to have a…
