Scientists have devised a new way to peer into the inner workings of a live honeybee colony, without disturbing the insects inside. The technique, known as Diagnostic Radioentomology (DR), scans a beehive, taking a series of 3D images. This reveals in real-time how many bees are inside, where they are, and gives clues as to what they are doing. Such information could help scientists understand what is causing bee numbers around the world...

The team used the Very Large Telescope in Chile to study the supernova 1987A, which lies 168,000 light-years away. The results show the original blast was very powerful and concentrated in one particular direction. Seen in 1987, it was the first supernova visible with the naked eye to have been observed for some 383 years.
