China has just launched its first ever x-ray telescope into space.

Nick-named 'Insight', it's job will be to search for black-holes, and help scientists to understand them better.

Black holes are pretty mysterious things, and so far scientists don't really know much about them.

Using special x-ray technology, Insight will aim to study black holes and send its findings back to researchers here on Earth.
