Astronomers Discovered A Massive Explosion In Space

Scientists cannot explain the origin of a mysterious object in deep space. Two telescopes installed in Hawaii, found unnaturally bright explosion in the sky.We’ve seen them before but this one tales the cake!

Astronomers from around the world now see through their telescopes over the area where was discovered the mysterious object. About 20 telescopes have already explored, but scientists have been unable to explain what caused such a powerful explosion.

“Never seen anything like that in the local universe,” said astrophysicist from Queen’s University in Belfast and Director of project ATLAS Stephen Smartt. The object is about 10 times brighter than ordinary supernova. Scientists do not exclude that it could occur in our Galaxy, but now he is about 200 million light-years from Earth.

The explosion was very fast, because particles of high energy are emitted outward at a speed of 20,000 miles per second, and the surface temperature may reach 9000 degrees Celsius. “We don’t know what it is, but a normal mechanism for the supernova is the radioactive decay of Nickel – and this event was too bright and too fast,” said the astronomers.
