Action Replay of Powerful Stellar Explosion
Astronomers have made the best ever determination of the power of a supernova explosion that was visible from Earth long ago. By observing the remnant of a supernova and a light echo from the initial outburst, they have established the validity of a powerful new method for studying supernovas. View News Article (2008-03-24)


Supernovae-Cosmic Lighthouses
Supernovae stand out in the sky like cosmic lighthouses. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics and at the National Astronomical Institute of Italy have now found a way to use these cosmic beacons to measure distances in space more accurately. View News Article (2007-02-12)


Hubble catches stellar explosions in NGC 6984
Supernovae are intensely bright objects. They are formed when a star reaches the end of its life with a dramatic explosion, expelling most of its material out into space.  View News Article (2013-11-11)


First compelling evidence for a black hole after recent supernova
Black holes, or the remnants of hyper-or supernova explosions, have intrigued scientists since the concept was first introduced in 1967. View News Article (2010-11-18)


New laser technique may help find supernova
One single atom of a certain isotope of hafnium found on Earth would prove that a supernova once exploded near our solar system. View News Article (2009-08-12)


Universe contains more calcium than expected
The universe contains one and a half times more calcium than previously assumed. This conclusion was drawn by astronomers of the SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research, after observations with ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory. View News Article (2007-02-07)


A star's death comes to light
Using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, scientists have created a stunning new image of one of the youngest supernova remnants in the galaxy. This new view of the debris of an exploded star helps astronomers solve a long-standing mystery, with implications for understanding how a star's life can end catastrophically and for gauging the expansion of the universe. View News Article (2007-01-10)


The Purple Rose of Virgo
ntil now NGC 5584 was just one galaxy among many others, located to the West of the Virgo Cluster. Known only as a number in galaxy surveys, its sheer beauty is now revealed in all its glory in a new VLT image. Since 1 March, this purple cosmic rose also holds the brightest stellar explosion of the year, known as SN 2007af. View News Article (2007-03-28)


Supernova birth seen for first time
Astronomers have seen the aftermath of spectacular stellar explosions known as supernovae before, but until now no one has witnessed a star dying in real time. View News Article (2008-05-22)


Stability lost as supernovae explode
Exploding supernovae are a phenomenon that is still not fully understood. View News Article (2014-05-16)
