    As reported in a meeting of the American Astronomical Society, scientists discovered the largest recorded black hole to date. It has the mass of 18 billion Suns. The size is unbelievably massive, the picture really helps to put it all in to perspective.

    The black hole is about six times as massive as the previous record holder and in fact weighs as much as a small galaxy. It lurks 3.5 billion light years away, and forms the heart of a quasar called OJ287. A quasar is an extremely bright object in which matter spiralling into a giant black hole emits copious amounts of radiation.

    An excerpt from an older, but still intriguing, article about what may happen to the human race in 1,000 years.

    The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due to dependence on technology.

    People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.

    The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the "underclass" humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures.

    Social skills, such as communicating and interacting with others, could be lost, along with emotions such as love, sympathy, trust and respect. People would become less able to care for others, or perform in teams.


    It's certainly within the real of possibility that in another 1,000 years the human race will have naturally divided itself in to a two very different (and possibly unrecognizable) forms. However, the article talks briefly about the human race's dependency on technology which could serve as a catalyst for this division. Couldn't it also be argued that this separation has already begun because some people have yet to adapt and grow with the progress of technology?

    Here's a link to the full article.
