Scientists Reveal the Origin of Cassiopeia A: What Should You Know

It is known that massive stars end their existence with energetics blasts, called supernovae. The so-called stripped-envelope supernovae manifest low or no traces of hydrogen in their ejecta. Such a thing means that the star loses most or all of...

Fragments From Kepler’s Supernova Don’t Slow Down After 400 Years

A white dwarf that went supernova in 1604 still intrigues astronomers. The event was visible to the naked eye and documented by the famous German astronomer Johannes Kepler. But, what's so different at this supernova? The Kepler's Supernova, as it...

A Supernova Could Have Triggered the Mass Extinction of the Late Devonian Era

A team of scientists hypothesizes that a supernova approximately 65 light-years away may have contributed to the mass extinction of the late Devonian Era, 359 million years ago.  Killer cosmic rays from neighboring supernovae could be the culprit behind at...

When Will the Last Supernova Ever Occur: the Predictions are Now Published

The end of the Universe, as we might imagine it, won't come with the expected bang. Most cosmic features will slowly start to fizzle as their temperatures fade to zero. If you want a better picture, imagine a sad, cold,...

Extreme Type Of Supernova: The Brightest Star Explosion Ever Seen

Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, which basically put Earth on hold, experts are focused on the skies. An enormous star explosion could be the biggest one ever seen. The star explosion known as SN2016aps, which occurred in a galaxy about 3.6...

Researchers are Still Trying to Solve the Mystery of the Universe Expansion

The Earth, Solar System, as well as the entire Milky Way and a few thousand galaxies in our vicinity move in a large 'bubble' that is about 250 million light-years in diameter, while the overall density of matter is half...

Researchers Came up With Concept That Implies Interstellar Traveling Using Supernovae as Fuel

On the subject of interstellar traveling challenges, there are no easy routes. The distances are massive, the amounts of energy required to hop on the journey are enormous, and the time frames involved are colossal. Researchers have now started to...
