Perth resident won 2 million dollars
A resident of the suburbs of Perth won a million jackpot after his wife scolded him for his love of lotteries.
The man said he could not hold back when he saw a raffle with a prize of 20 million Australian dollars. However, his wife had a different opinion. She scolded her husband for his excessive passion for lotteries, because all he had won before was just six cans of beer.
However, after the draw, the woman was forced to change her mind and apologize. Because this lottery ticket made them millionaires - the couple received almost 2 million Australian dollars.
"I got into a real mess when I told my wife that I had bought a lottery ticket. However, now she has taken back her words," said the lucky man.
Despite winning the lottery, the man continued to go to work. The couple plans to buy a country house in the southwest of the state.

Reunion after Rottnest quarantine
Yesterday 209 people returned from Rottnest Island to Perth, to their homes and families. Because of coronavirus lockdown they could not leave the place and it became a cage for a while for them. Everyone will have to spend two weeks more in the hotels of Perth in case of infecting. However, the reunion of families was very emotional. One woman had birthday on the day she returned, she said it was the best present to be at home again.

New discovery from Perth
A unique discovery was made by employees of the University of Perth. In the depths of the Universe, with the help of the Chandra orbital X-ray observatory and the ground-based complex of Wildfield radio telescopes, they managed to record a cyclopean explosion at a distance of 340 million light-years from Earth. Suffice it to say that in terms of power this is the second such cataclysm after the Big Bang. According to researchers, in the "crater" of an explosion with a diameter of a million light-years, it will fit in a series of 15 galaxies like the Milky Way. The energy flow from the explosion is equivalent to emitted 10 million stars over billions of years of their life. It remains a mystery why such a significant cosmic catastrophe was not discovered before.
Astronomers at the University of South Wales determined the period of rotation of the planet around its star - only eight days. The planet's rotation plane is inclined to the axis of stellar rotation at an angle of 12 degrees. The clouds around young stars provide material for planet formation. This process is clearly visible after dispersion of dust and gas.
