Discovery could challenge what we know about how thermonuclear explosions occur in stars
Astronomers have found dramatic evidence that a black hole or neutron star spiraled its way into the core of a companion star and caused that companion to explode as a supernova
Killer cosmic rays from nearby supernovae could be the culprit behind at least one mass extinction event, researchers said
Getting the machine to produce results useful for studying nature took two and a half years of engineering adjustments
Computer simulations of neutron stars could help better understand the possible sources of gravitational waves
Unlike most stellar explosions that fade away, Supernova SN 2012au continues to shine today thanks to a powerful new pulsar
"Our simulations are only a first step toward truly realistic 3D simulations of supernova."
With the help of a special spectroscopic camera developed by a Texas Tech University physicist, researchers at Caltech and Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network captured rare images of a star in another galaxy going supernova within a day of the star’s explosion.
