Box Office: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Is Fastest Film to Earn $1 Billion Worldwide

  Box Office: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Is Fastest Film to Earn $1 Billion Worldwide “Avengers: Infinity War” is set to overtake $1 billion worldwide this weekend, setting the record for the fastest film to reach that milestone. The Disney-Marvel film will take in around US$122 million this weekend from 4,474 North American locations, which, combined with its international total, will push it past the $1 billion mark. “Infinity War” is Marvel’s sixth film to reach that number, including the second most recent installment in the MCU, “Black Panther.

Astronomers have found the fastest-growing black hole ever discovered. This enormous beast, they've found, gulps down a mass equivalent of the sun every two days.

The team discovered it was growing at a rate of one percent every million years in the early stages of the universe, some 12 billion years ago.

"We don't know how this one grew so large, so quickly in the early days of the Universe," said Christian Wolf from the Australian National University (ANU) in a statement. "The hunt is on to find even faster-growing black holes."

Jason Day holds on to win Wells Fargo Championship

  Jason Day holds on to win Wells Fargo Championship Jason Day birdied two of his final three holes Sunday for a 2-under 69 and a two-shot victory over Aaron Wise and Nick Watney in the Wells Fargo Championship, his second victory this year. After squandering a three-shot lead on the back nine, Day rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole and then effectively won the tournament when his tee shot on the 230-yard 17th hole crashed into the flagstick and settled 3 feet away. He was the only player to make birdie on No. 17 at Quail Hollow in the final round, and it staked him to a two-shot lead.Wise, a PGA Tour rookie, saved par on his last two holes for a 68.

This supermassive monster also happens to be the fastest - growing black hole ever seen, devouring the equivalent of the Sun every two days . This supermassive black hole sits at the center of a quasar known by the catchy name of SMSS~J215728.21-360215.1.

The black hole pumps out huge amounts of light, outshining whole galaxies. “This black hole is growing so rapidly that it's shining thousands of times more brightly than an entire galaxy, due to all of the gases it sucks in daily that cause lots of friction and heat,” Wolf said.

“If we had this monster sitting at the centre of our Milky Way galaxy, it would appear 10 times brighter than a full moon. It would appear as an incredibly bright pinpoint star that would almost wash out all of the stars in the sky," he added.

In fact, if this “monster” black hole was at the heart of our galaxy, its enormous X-ray output would likely make life on Earth impossible, he said.

Astronomers Reveal What Might Happen To Our Sun At Death

  Astronomers Reveal What Might Happen To Our Sun At Death The central hub of our solar system is expected to die in some 10 billion years.As we won’t be around to see the remains of our star, an international team of astronomers has predicted how the central hub of the solar system might change during after its death. They used a novel stellar, data-model and came to the conclusion that following its death, our sun will turn into a giant ring, one made up of an extremely bright envelope of interstellar gas and dust.

Newly Discovered ' Monster ' Black Hole Has a Terrifying Diet. Scientists have discovered the fastest - growing black hole ever found, and boy oh boy is it one hungry little beast.

Wolf and his team combed through huge banks of data to find this mega black hole. They used ANU’s own Skymapper Southern Sky Survey and the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite data to home in on the beast. The team looked into the early universe to find the black hole.

Astronomers might be able to probe the formation of early galaxies by looking at the light streaming from these mysterious monsters, Wolf said.

“Scientists can see the shadows of objects in front of the supermassive black hole," he added. "Fast-growing supermassive black holes also help to clear the fog around them by ionizing gases, which makes the Universe more transparent."

Wolf and his team are set to publish their research in Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia. For now, it is available on the preprint server, arXiv.

Legend of Loch Ness Monster will be tested with DNA samples .
The stories seem as tall as the lake is deep. For hundreds of years, visitors to Scotland's Loch Ness have described seeing a monster that some believe lurks in the depths. But now the legend of "Nessie" may have no place left to hide. Scientists will take samples of the lake's murky waters next month to conduct DNA tests on any organic matter they find to determine what species live there. University of Otago professor Neil Gemmell says he's no believer in Nessie, but he wants to take people on an adventure and communicate some science along the way. Besides, he says, his kids think it's one of the coolest things he's ever done.
