High-tech bee hives, bull sharks and our very own black hole: May's best science images
Take a look through our pick of the best science images from May 2022.
Sometimes science throws up some mind-blowing sights. For instance, we now finally have photographic evidence that there is a black hole right in the middle of our galaxy, and it only took a telescope the size of a planet to see it.
In our monthly round-up, we also feature a man who has decided to carry all of the waste he has generated in one month on his back (no, not that kind of waste), a sugar-powered fuel cell, and some bees that have their very own high-tech lab to play in.
So here are the best images in science we've seen this month.
