Peculiar, junior-sized supernova discovered by New York teen
In November 2008, Caroline Moore, a 14-year-old student from upstate New York, discovered a supernova in a nearby galaxy, making her the youngest person ever to do so. View News Article (2009-06-11)

Supernova remnants dance in the LMC
The Gemini South Multi-Object Spectograph (GMOS) recently captured a dramatic image of a vast cloud complex named DEM L316 located in the Large Magellanic Cloud. View News Article (2008-01-11)

Strange supernova is 'missing link' in gamma-ray burst connection
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) have found a long-sought "missing link" between supernova explosions that generate gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and those that don't.  View News Article (2015-04-28)

Superbubble of supernova remnants caught in act of forming
A superbubble in space, caught in the act of forming, can help scientists better understand the life and death of massive stars, say researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. View News Article (2007-01-10)

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)

Astronomers observe 4 images of the same supernova using a cosmic lens
Astronomers have for the first time observed a supernova (an exploding star) multiply-imaged due to gravitational lensing.  View News Article (2015-03-06)

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)
