We start today with Israeli voters’ embrace of Benjamin Netanyahu, the start of general elections in India, and stunning galactic news — the first image of a black hole.
The election results in Israel prove, once again, that Israelis cannot imagine life without Benjamin Netanyahu at the head of government — even if he could be toppled in the months ahead on corruption charges.
Mr. Netanyahu is widely credited with having built a strong economy and keeping Israel secure. He has also delivered long-sought diplomatic victories, several of them with the help of President Trump.
What’s next: President Reuven Rivlin is expected to choose, within days, the party leader he believes has the best chance of assembling a parliamentary majority. Preliminary results suggest that would be Mr. Netanyahu, whose Likud party has stronger potential partners than the Blue and White alliance of his chief rival, Benny Gantz. Here are the latest updates.
Mr. Netanyahu is almost certain to try to persuade his coalition partners to pass a law granting him immunity from prosecution.
Political shifts: More than a million Israelis voted for Blue and White, a record for a new party, placing it in the position of being the main alternative to Israel’s right wing, a spot held for decades by the Labor Party.
It’s the biggest democratic exercise in human history: 900 million eligible voters, at least 11 million poll workers and 2.3 million electronic voting machines.
The first wave of India’s voters hit the polls today to select a new Parliament. The voting will play out over the next five weeks. The incoming lawmakers will select a prime minister.
Go deeper: The race is effectively a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is facing a strong challenge by the Congress party. Many Indians believe that his administration has been more effective, less corrupt and better at positioning India on the world stage than past governments. Others think his right-leaning political party, the Bharatiya Janata Party, has alienated minorities and stoked fear.
Theresa May met with European leaders in Brussels to plead for more time to salvage her faltering withdrawal plans. The current deadline is tomorrow.
European Union officials were expected to offer Britain extra time for its departure from the bloc — well beyond the June 30 deadline extension Mrs. May requested.
If it is pushed to the end of the year, there are factors that could break the current deadlock in London: Parliament approving a deal, a general election, a second referendum or a change of prime minister.
Voices: Mrs. May’s weakness at home and abroad has not gone unnoted on the Continent. One German publication described her visit to Berlin and Paris on Tuesday as a “begging tour.”
Warning: The International Monetary Fund said that an abrupt Brexit would throw Britain into a two-year recession that would leave its economy 3.5 percent smaller than forecast.
Astronomers unveiled the first image of a black hole, an object so dense that not even light can escape its gravity.
The image showed a dark circle surrounded by swirling fogs of radio noise in the heart of a galaxy. It affirmed a finding that shocked Albert Einstein when his equations predicted it in the early 20th century: that space-time can collapse when too much matter or energy is concentrated in one place.
Reaction: “We have seen what we thought was unseeable,” said Shep Doeleman of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
How they did it: Eight radio observatories — spanning six mountains and four continents — observed the galaxy on and off for 10 days in April 2017. The image emerged after two years of computer analysis.

Huaraz, a Peruvian city of 130,000, sits about 14 miles below this swelling glacial lake. Many of its residents live in fear that a flood, caused by an avalanche at the lake, could wipe away their homes.
Our Sunday Magazine’s climate issue looks at how and why a Peruvian farmer has filed a lawsuit against a German utility company — and what the effort might teach us about litigating a problem as enormously complex as global climate change.
New Zealand: Parliament passed a law banning most semiautomatic weapons less than a month after the killings in Christchurch. Just one lawmaker opposed it.
Germany: In one of the highest-profile cases against a female member of the Islamic State, a German woman is on trial for the death of a 5-year-old Yazidi girl she held as a slave.
Russia: From the Altai Mountains to the Pacific Coast, China is ravaging vast woodlands while restricting commercial logging in its own forests.
China: In the Yujiapu Financial District, which promotes itself as China’s Manhattan, four-fifths of the office space stands empty, demonstrating a breakdown of the Chinese economic growth model.
Afghanistan: Dozens of security and Taliban forces were killed as violence intensified before another round of peace talks to end the 18-year-old war there.
Australia: Vegan protests across the country reignited debates about animal cruelty and sustainability, and exposed a societal rift between animal rights activists and farmers.
Japan: The country’s military recovered parts of an F-35A warplane that disappeared during a training exercise. The pilot was still missing.
Snapshot: A smartphone photo, above, taken during a demonstration in Sudan against the repressive regime of President Omar al-Bashir, has gone viral as continuing protests there reach a new intensity.
Taiwan: An ophthalmologist removed four tiny sweat bees that were living inside a woman’s eye and feeding off her tears.
What we’re reading: Comic strips on Instagram. Michael Roston, a science editor, writes: “If you really miss the funny pages in newspapers of yore, try Instagram. For months my feed has been dominated by comics made for the medium, and I couldn’t be happier. Once you follow a few, Instagram’s algorithm will serve up more. Here’s a starter pack of three: Strange Planet, Rubyetc and They Can Talk.”Now, a break from the news

Read: “Normal People,” Sally Rooney’s hugely anticipated second novel, is finally out in the U.S. “There is, in the pointed dialogue, a reminder of why we call it a punch line,” our critic writes.
Eat: The chef Jenny Kwak has been turning New Yorkers on to Korean food for 25 years. Our critic reviews her newest restaurant, Haenyeo, in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Smarter Living: A computer science professor researched his latest book, “Digital Minimalism,” by signing up 1,600 people for a monthlong divorce from the optional online world. He came away with clear guidance on digital decluttering: Remove most apps from your phone, leaving them only on your browser. And the going may get rough, so only the most satisfying analog activities will keep you inspired. Win-win.
And we’ve collected five cheap(ish) things to untangle yourself from smartphone dependence.
Every two years, “Star Wars” aficionados, some in Wookiee fur, gather for Celebration.
It’s a giant marketing stunt in galactic disguise, organized by Disney’s Lucasfilm. The 13th installment begins in Chicago on Thursday.
Disney wants to rally the faithful for the December release of the next “Star Wars” episode. The title is to be announced on Friday.
Billions of dollars in movie tickets, merchandise and video-on-demand rentals are on the line.
Safe to say it will not be “Episode IX — We Will Keep This Going Until Tatooine Freezes Over.”
“Make Alderaan Great Again?” Or a musical? “A Death Star Is Born.”
Fans have spent months guessing. A Reddit user floated “Balance of the Force,” citing coding buried on StarWars.com. The subtitles do tend to be something of the something — “Return of the Jedi,” “Attack of the Clones,” “Revenge of the Sith.”
The promotion can either help fans to move past their grouchiness over the eighth movie, “The Last Jedi,” or prompt another rebellion that will send Disney marketers to battle positions.
That’s it for this briefing. We hope you consumed it with the ferocity of a black hole. See you next time.
