A team of scientists at Durham University believe they have made a significant discovery about dark matter, the most common substance in the universe that is invisible.
Astronomers, using the Hubble Space Telescope, say they might have observed the first hint of dark matter interacting with gravity, having previously thought this was not possible.
Scientists initially thought dark matter could not interact with the universe but this could be proof it can. The discovery could mean a change to physics in the future.

The Moon took more than two hours to transit the sun during this morning's solar eclipse. But here you can watch it in 30 seconds.
This time-lapse video, which has been speeded up 50 times, was shot by one of our cameramen at Kielder Observatory.
The sun appears to move across the screen but it is actually the earth that is moving as it rotates around it's axis.
Throughout the transit our cameraman had to reposition the camera several times to keep the Sun in shot.

Anyone in the north might have a chance of seeing the Northern Lights tonight.
They are caused when charged particles from the sun hit the Earth's atmosphere.
There was a large explosion on the Sun on Sunday - sending magnetically charged particles our way.
The main trouble we will have is with cloud amounts. Clearer skies are expected in the west overnight - but even then you will need a lot of luck

Newcastle men are the first patients to be diagnosed with rare diseases after volunteering for ground-breaking 100,000 Genomes Project.Read the full story ›
A new medical technique which uses a patient's DNA to diagnose rare conditions has been used for the first time in the UK.
The technique has been developed at Newcastle University and uses an individual's genetic blueprint to enable doctors to personalise medical care.
Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt will meet with medical experts at Newcastle's Centre for Life where the research was carried out.
