Astrophysicists conducted a simulation study in order to have a better understanding of the formation of the oldest-known star in the galaxy.
Astronomers independently detected a yellow supergiant star at a location closely matching that of the supernova SN 2011dh in the M51 galaxy through images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope.
The supernova explosion of the year 1006 – the brightest stellar event ever recorded in history – was probably caused by the merger of two white dwarf stars, scientists have found.
For decades it has been thought that a shock wave from a supernova explosion triggered our solar system’s formation.
Scientists at Carnegie Institution for Science have provided the first fully three-dimensional models to demonstrate how a shock wave from a supernova explosion triggered the formation of our Solar System.
Satnav could be using neutron stars to steer a course through the universe, just as sailors of yore navigated the vast seas by the stars and the moon.
Astrophysicists have detected 150 supernovas, a record-breaking number in the Subaru Deep Field.
In what seems to be straight out of a science fiction, American scientists have claimed the Earth could soon be wiped out by a supernova or the explosion of a star.
