Scientists have found an unusual void hiding in plain sight.
Scientists have discovered one of the smallest black holes on record—and the closest one to Earth found to date.
The black hole was given the nickname because it's so rare but also because it was discovered in the constellation Monoceros, which means unicorn.
This one-of-a-kind black hole was discovered 1,500 light-years from Earth. Scientists say it is also the smallest on record with a mass just three times of the sun. The team has named it 'The Unicorn.'

The death of George Floyd and other high-profile police killings have prompted African-Americans to seek help, mental health experts say.
Using the SRG/eROSITA all-sky survey data, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics have found two previously quiescent galaxies that now show quasi-periodic eruptions. The nuclei of these galaxies light up in X-rays every few hours, reaching peak luminosities comparable to that of an entire galaxy. The origin of this pulsating behavior is unclear. A possible cause is a stellar object orbiting the central black hole. As these galaxies are relatively close and small,...
