Star closest to centre of Milky Way 05/10/2012
The shortest known period star orbiting our Galaxy´s supermassive black hole
SO-102 revolves around the Milky Way´s supermassive black hole in 11,5 years. The star may help test the laws of gravity under extreme conditions and understand the role supermassive black holes play in the center of galaxies  
Arp 299 25/09/2012
Optical surveys miss between 20% and 80% of core-collapse supernova
