Violent helium reaction on white dwarf surface triggers supernova explosion
5-October-2017

An international research team has used the Hyper Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii to find a Type Ia supernova not long after its explosion. They are the first to find solid evidence about what triggered the star to explode, which will contribute to a further understanding of supernova history and behavior.

Supersonic gas streams left over from the Big Bang drive massive black hole formation
29-September-2017

A super-computer simulation by an international team of researchers has shown the formation of a rapidly growing star from supersonic gas streams in the early universe left over from the Big Bang. The star ends its life with catastrophic collapse to leave a black hole with a mass of 34,000 times that of the Sun.

Ultraviolet light from superluminous supernova key to revealing explosion mechanism
7-September-2017

An international team of researchers led by Kavli IPMU's Alexey Tolstov and Ken'ichi Nomoto have discovered a way to use UV light from superluminous supernovae to uncover its explosion mechanism, and used it to identify Gaia16apd as a shock-interacting supernova, reports a new study.
