An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars

SMScrdhp

Certain primordial stars—those between 55,000 and 56,000 solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind. » Read More

Simulations Reveal An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars

September 29, 2014

Certain primordial stars—those 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our Sun, or solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects—among the Universe’s first-generation of stars—would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind.
