If the light from supernovae travels at, unsurprisingly, the speed of light (which really is the upper limit here), how can we predict them? Time travel, is that you? Spoiler alert: it isn’t. It’s neutrinos.
How long does it take for a star’s core to collapse in a supernova explosion? Today’s authors use observations to place new constraints on the explosion timescale!
How do you make a supernova without hydrogen and helium lines? The answer may surprise you! (It’s probably binary stars)
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Yuxin Dong explores the origins of Calcium-rich transients, a peculiar type of supernovae
Today’s authors discovered a kilonova associated with a long gamma-ray burst! Read on to hear about how this might flip the gamma-ray burst world upside down.
The authors of today’s paper seek to uncover what is occulted in the final moments of a massive star’s death. To this end, they outline the feasibility of measuring the background flux of “relic neutrinos” and connect them to their origins.
