Astronomers find the most powerful supernova explosion ever, located 3.8bn light-years away, and more luminous than the entire Milky Way!
Starburst Cluster NGC 1929 in the Large Magellanic Cloud This cluster is creating shockwave “superbubbles” that are triggering chain reactions of supernova explosions. This image is a composite of three light wavelengths, X-rays are represented as blue, visible light as yellow, and infra-red light as red.
A rare supernova explosion has led scientist's to believe they may be witnessing the birth of a black hole for the first time in history.
Astronomers have found evidence for what is likely one of the most extreme pulsars, or rotating neutron stars, ever detected. The source exhibits properties of a highly magnetized neutron star, or magnetar, yet its deduced spin period is thousands of times longer than any pulsar ever observed. For decades, astronomers have known there is a dense, compact source at the center these remains of a supernova explosion located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Image credit: X-ray…

Hubble Confirms Two Solitary Supernovae 6/5/15 by Sci-News.com New observations with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope confirm that two Type Ia supernovae discovered six years ago exploded in the intergalactic space, having been ejected from their host galaxies millions of years earlier: Alex Parker / NASA / SDSS.

This new Hubble image shows the spiral galaxy Messier 83, otherwise known as the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy. This galaxy is dramatic and mysterious; it has hosted a large number of supernova explosions, and is thought to have a double nucleus lurking at its core. http://spacetelescope.org/news/heic1403/ AND http://infinity-imagined.tumblr.com/post/73545042127/spiral-galaxy-m83
