NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has uncovered an unusual category of supernova explosion
A supernova is challenging astronomers’ models of how exploding stars distribute their elements
They release a billion times more energy, rivalling supernovae in their explosive power
Galaxies “waste” large amounts of material generated by star formation, according to new research
Evidence of a series of massive supernova explosions near our Solar System, which showered our planet with radioactive debris, has been found
Rapidly spinning neutron stars called magnetars could explain two extremely unusual stellar explosions
We’re made of star stuff, so how many Earth-like planets can one stellar explosion make?
Meet the stars that teach us something interesting about our own Sun
