Mysterious flashing star

Mysterious flashing star seems destined for an explosive end


Every night, supernova surveys sweep their nets through the dark like fishing trawlers, searching for stars that suddenly brighten. What they find comes back to Earth through emails, text alerts and Twitter.

Some of these exploding stars turn out to be valuable to astronomers. Cosmologists are obsessed with finding different supernovae that flare up to the same luminosity, essential for gauging the age, size and ultimate fate of the universe. Astrophysicists want to know how massive stars detonate by collapsing onto themselves.
