XMM-Newton's anniversary view of supernova SN 1987A
Twenty years after the first detection of SN 1987A, the nearest supernova ever detected since the invention of the telescope, XMM-Newton provided a fresh-new view of this object. The source keeps brightening-XMM-Newton confirms. View News Article (2007-02-26)

Clues To Supernova Origin Found In Dusty Stellar Wind
Scientists from Imperial College London have detected a dusty wind emitted by a star that, at the end of its life, turned into a white dwarf and then exploded as a supernova. This is the first time that a wind from this type of supernova precursor has been observed and it is also the first time that associated dust has been detected. The properties of the wind hold vital clues to the kind of star... View News Article (2005-03-30)

Mach 1000 shock wave lights supernova remnant
When a star explodes as a supernova, it shines brightly for a few weeks or months before fading away View News Article (2013-11-26)

CERN scientists predict supernova
A team of theoretical physicists working at CERN and the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel has developed a theory to account for the mysterious gamma ray bursts that come from the depths of the Universe. According to their ideas, gamma ray bursts are linked to supernovae, the cataclysmic explosions of massive stars at the end of their lives. When a new gamma ray burst (GRB 030329) was...

Twin Star Explosions Fascinate Astronomers
Scientists using NASA's Swift satellite stumbled upon a rare sight, two supernovas side by side in one galaxy. View News Article (2006-11-21)

Astronomers discover new kind of supernova
Supernovae were always thought to occur in two main varieties. But a team of astronomers including Carnegie's Wendy Freedman, Mark Phillips and Eric Persson is reporting the discovery of a new type of supernova called Type Iax.  View News Article (2013-03-27)

Supernova remnant menagerie
The supernova remnant N 63A is a member of N 63, a star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Visible from the southern hemisphere, the LMC is an irregular galaxy lying 160,000 light-years from our own Milky Way galaxy. View News Article (2005-06-07)

NASA's Swift Sees Double Supernova in Galaxy
In just the past six weeks, two supernovae have flared up in an obscure galaxy in the constellation Hercules. Never before have astronomers observed two of these powerful stellar explosions occurring in the same galaxy so close together in time. View News Article (2007-06-27)

Hubble Monitors Supernova In Nearby Galaxy M82
This is a Hubble Space Telescope composite image of a supernova explosion designated SN 2014J in the galaxy M82. At a distance of approximately 11.5 million light-years from Earth it is the closest supernova of its type discovered in the past few decades. View News Article (2014-02-27)

The VLT Measures the Shape of a Type Ia Supernova
First Polarimetric Detection of Explosion Asymmetry has Cosmological Implications [1] An international team of astronomers [2] has performed new and very detailed observations of a supernova in a distant galaxy with the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) at the Paranal Observatory (Chile). They show for the first time that a particular type of supernova, caused by the explosion of a "white dwarf", a... View News Article (2003-08-05)
