Astronomers call it the monster. It was the biggest and brightest cosmic explosion ever witnessed. Had it been closer, Earth would have been toast.

Gamma Ray Race provides more support for Einstein's theories.

An interesting read even with the typo's.

Einstein@home volunteers have discovered 4 gamma-ray pulsars in Fermi data and have been credited and given a certificate. I am crunching Fermi data also in Albert@home but so far I have not found one. This is another proof of the validity of the Einstein@home algorithm designed to find gravitational waves.

A newly discovered exploding star may have broken two cosmic records, as it’s both the brightest and the most distant supernova ever seen, according to a new study.
