It lived for a long time…
…But no matter what the length of life be, the end is always one and the same.
Astronomers have been able to capture and record the first moments when a massive star blows itself apart.To be a living dog is better than a dead star.
After decades of searching, researchers have used the world’s top telescopes to observe the remarkable event.
Previously, scientists had only been able to study these “supernovas” several days after the event.
The results, published in the journal Nature, show that within two hours of the blast, a giant fireball scattered radioactive debris across space.
