The star N6946-BH1 dies as a failed supernova leaving behind a black hole.
An exploding star gets split into four images due to a passing galaxy.
Astronomers observe a supernova just a few hours after the explosion of a red supergiant star.
A new study revealed that astronomers, who have classified a incredibly luminous outburst detected by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN) last year as the brightest supernova ever found, were mistaken because the luminous outburst may actually be a supermassive black hole ripping an unfortunate star.
It was previously suspected that supernova had been the reason that the solar system was, noting that the supernova would have enough energy to disturb the gas clouds about 4.6 billion years ago. But until now, there was no concrete evidence to prove it.
Scientists discovered a microbe that could provide a model for how “alien life” might survive in uninhabitable planets throughout the universe.
Astronomers at the NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have made an exciting new discovery. They’ve found the slowest-spinning neutron star all thanks to its unusual bursts of X-rays. So what’s so great about this new star?
Astronomers have created a detailed computer simulation of the Milky Way galaxy’s formation, which solved the mystery involving the missing group of smaller galaxies that should have been present.
Scientists discovered the giant star system Eta Carinae’s strange and violent past, which reveals critical knowledge about how extremely massive stars die.
Scientists have discovered evidence of supernova explosion millions of years ago in fossilized bacteria on the ocean floor.
Astronomers captured images of a classical nova, before, during and after its explosion, providing new insights on how these things evolve.
Astronomers take a peek in the past million years of the supernova remnant 1987A before it exploded about 30 years ago.
Astronomers have detected for the first time a case of three supernova remnants one inside the other, shedding some light in the feedback phenomenon.
Astronomers were able to piece images together and peek into the core of Crab Nebula.
