Cosmic Blast

Cosmic Blast

More powerful than a supernova, a new type of cosmic explosion has been categorized (seen in the X-ray photo on the left). The energy blast occurred in December of 2003 from a distance of about 1.6 billion light years away. Weaker than a typical gamma-ray burst (the most powerful emission in the universe), the cause of this new type of explosion is currently a mystery, reports a Reuters article(1). View an animation(2) of the blast from ESA/University of Leicester.
