Scientists have recorded the moment of a supernova explosion for the first time

Astronomers from the Australian National University were able to capture the moment of a supernova outbreak for the first time. The portal writes about this.

It is noted that the exploded star was a hundred times larger than the sun.

“This is the first time when it was possible to get such detailed images of this phenomenon,” said one of the participants of the project, Patrick Armstrong.

According to the scientist, because of the transience of the explosion, it is very difficult for most telescopes to fix it. The data available earlier were incomplete and included only the consequences of the death of the star.

In the future, scientists plan to use the latest information to identify other supernovae.

A supernova flare is a phenomenon in which a star dramatically increases its brightness. A significant energy release accompanies this.
