    7. An image based on a supercomputer simulation of the cosmological environment where primordial gas undergoes the direct collapse to a black hole. The gas flows along filaments of dark matter that form a cosmic web connecting structures in the early universe.

    8. Astronomers have discovered evidence for an unusual kind of black hole born extremely early in the universe. They showed that a recently discovered unusual source of intense radiation is likely powered by a "direct-collapse black hole," a type of object predicted by theorists more than a decade ago.

    9. Astronomers are searching for a possible ninth planet beyond Pluto's orbit.

    10. Astronomer Sarah Ballard spoke out against Geoff Marcy's sexual harassment. What does a whistleblower do when she returns home? The post What Happens When a Harassment Whistleblower Goes on the Science Job Market appeared first on WIRED .
