    The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Telescope provides an infrared view of a twisted ring at the center of our galaxy.

    If you look for signs and portents in the skies, you can't do much better than this: The Herschel Space Telescope has provided the best view yet of an infinity sign at the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
    "This is what is so exciting about launching a new space telescope like Herschel," Sergio Molinari of the Institute of Space Physics in Rome said in an image advisory issued today. "We have a new and exciting mystery on our hands, right at the center of our own galaxy."
    Molinari is the lead author of a research paper on the twisted ring, appearing in a recent issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters. Portions of the ring have been spotted before, but Herschel's image cuts through the dust at the galactic center to reveal the full structure in submillimeter wavelengths. This version of Herschel's view highlights the shape of the ring, which stretches across more than 600 light-years:

    US songwriter Jerry Ragovoy dies aged 80



    US songwriter Jerry Ragovoy, who wrote songs for the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley, has died aged 80.

    The Grammy award-winning musician passed away last week at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York following complications from a stroke.

    Some of his famous songs included the Stones' 1964 hit Time Is On My Side and Erma Franklin's Piece of My Heart.

    He also wrote songs under the pseudonym of Norman Meade.

    Born in Philadelphia as Jordan Ragovoy, the musician entered record production in 1953, working with The Castelles.

    Piece of My Heart, first recorded by Franklin in 1967 was famously recorded by Janis Joplin a year later.

    B.B King, Louis Jordan, Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin also recorded tracks written by Ragovoy.

    He also worked as a producer for artists including Diana Ross and Dionne Warwick.

    In 1973, Ragovoy walked away with his first Grammy for best score from an original cast show album, for his production work on Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope.

    Speaking to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Jim Steinblatt, a spokesman for the performance rights group ASCAP, said: "Jerry was a giant of soul, R&B and rock songwriting and record production.

    "His songs were far better known than he was."
