Science
Researchers have found lakes that may shed new light on icy worlds in our Solar System.High in the Canadian Arctic, two subglacial bodies of water have been spotted beneath over 500 metres of ice.The water has an estimated maximum temperature of -10.5C, and would need to be very salty to avoid freezing.There are thought to be similar cold, saline conditions in the subsurface ocean of Jupiter's moon Europa, yet also the potential to host life.The findings, from a team led by the University of Alberta, have been published in Science Advances.A Canadian firstThe two lakes appeared in a radar survey of the Devon Ice Cap, which sits on Devon Island, in Canada's northern Nunavut territory."I was super surprised, and a little bit puzzled," Anja Rutishauser, the study's lead author, said of the di...

Dozen black holes found at galactic centre

Science
A dozen black holes may lie at the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way, researchers have said.A new analysis provides support for a decades-old prediction that "supermassive" black holes at the centres of galaxies are surrounded by many smaller ones.However, previous searches of the Milky Way's centre, where the nearest supermassive black hole is located, have found little evidence for this.Details appear in the journal Nature.Charles Hailey from Columbia University in New York and colleagues used archival data from Nasa's Chandra X-ray telescope to come to their conclusions.They report the discovery of a dozen inactive and low-mass "binary systems", in which a star orbits an unseen companion - the black hole.The supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way, known as Sagittarius ...
