Big Kaboom! Massive Star Goes Nova

The NY Times reports that the most massive supernova every observed occurred last September.

Better information available at Space.com. The NY Times waters down the science, as usual.

I haven’t been keeping up on my Blog Tracking or this wouldn’t be a surprise to me. This supernova is particularly cool because it does not fall into the current theories of stellar death. Someone, somehwere, just discovered their Ph.D. dissertation.
