Surprise discovery provides new insights into stellar deaths

By | 2018-06-15T09:31:29+00:00 June 14th, 2018|press release|

Astronomers, working on a project to detect supernovas, made a surprise discovery when they found that one supernova explosion was actually a star being pulled apart by a supermassive black hole. This rare stellar death, known as a tidal disruption event, or TDE, occurs when the powerful gravity of a supermassive black hole rips apart [...]
