Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 44.

*Black hole discovered hiding in plain sight
Astronomers have detected a previously unseen black hole that’s been hiding in plain sight. The findings indicate the newly discovered black hole is located about 7,200 light years away, well within our own Milky Way galaxy. Because the study only covered a very small patch of sky, the findings imply that there should be tens of thousands to millions of these unseen black holes in the Milky Way -- thousands more than previous studies suggested.

*Water found on Brown dwarf
Astronomers have -- for the first time -- found evidence of water in the clouds around a nearby brown dwarf. The discovery represents the strongest evidence yet for the existence of clouds of water or water ice, outside of our solar system.

*New Soyuz capsule launches to Space Station
Roscosmos has launched its newly upgraded Soyuz MS series capsule on its maiden flight to the International Space Station.
The Soyuz MS-01 spacecraft blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan carrying three Expedition 48 crew members to the orbiting outpost.

*2016 will be a second longer
On December 31, 2016, a “leap second” will be added to the world’s clocks at 23 hours, 59 minutes 59 seconds Greenwich mean time. Historically, time was based on the mean rotation of the Earth relative to celestial bodies, and the second was defined in this reference frame. However, the invention of atomic clocks defined a much more precise “atomic” timescale and a second that is independent of Earth’s rotation
