Stellar behemoth self-destructs in a Type IIb supernova

Think this is the right thread to pop this in. :)

For the first time, astronomers have direct confirmation that a Wolf-Rayet star -- sitting 360 million light years away -- died in a violent explosion known as a Type IIb supernova. Using the iPTF pipeline, researchers caught supernova SN 2013cu within hours of its explosion.

There was a big Gamma Ray Burst in Andromeda, M31. Unfortunately, all gravitational wave detectors are shut down for upgrading, otherwise we could have detected something for the first time.
