PSR J1748-2446ad is a monster indeed.

Black hole ASASSN14-li is spinning at least half as fast as the speed of light. I don't even know how much rpms is that lol
That would depend on the diameter of it. Going backwards to % of speed of light for our spinning neutron star:

20 mile diameter = ~ 32000m
32000m * pi = circumference (~100530m)
at 716x per second = ~71980170 m/s on the surface of the equator

That should be just over 24% of the speed of light. I hope I didnt mess up anywhere, its late.

An international research team led by the University of Göttingen has discovered two new Earth-like planets near one of our closest neighboring stars. "Teegarden’s star" is only about 12.5 light years away from Earth and is one of the smallest known stars. It is only about 2700 °C warm and about ten times lighter than the Sun. Although it is so close to us, the star wasn’t discovered until 2003. The scientists observed the star for about three years.



I can't hide my excitement, this is so cool!

Very exciting indeed! This might be the best candidate for life outside our solar system to date. Both are inside the habitable zone for the star, and depending on the star's characteristics, the strength of each planets magnetic field and whether or not the planets are tidally locked, conditions might be very favorable for earth-like(carbon/water based) life.
