Gamma-ray Burst: Brightest Ever Recorded [Video]

The video demonstrates an enormous explosion that happened in April 27, 2013 in the adjoining universe indicating the death of a supersize star that is 20 to 100 times mass of the Sun.

The video demonstrates an enormous explosion(Gamma-ray burst) that happened in April 27,  2013  in the adjoining universe indicating the death of a supersize star that is 20 to 100 times mass of the Sun. The explosion of a star results in the formation of a black hole and the blasts particle jets outward at nearly the speed of light.

The explosion lasted as long as 20 hours which is the longest and the brightest ever recorded that it poses a challenge to any of the standard explanations for how such radiation is possible.

“It’s a real puzzle why we would be getting this radiation at such high energies at such late times,” says Charles Dermer at the US Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC.

  1. Only discovered your page a few weeks ago. Pure awesomeness. Now one of my favorite sites. Tried using the WordPress option of “reblog” for this article, but ended up not doing justice. Plan is to do an article of my own at some point over the next week pointing out the awesomeness of Sparkonit. I hope you don’t mind. Thanks for doing what you do.
