The new Japanese facility, to be ready by the year’s end, will be Asia’s first detector and the world’s first below ground
Site of asteroid impact changed the history of life
10 Nov 2017
An asteroid, also known as the Chicxulub Impactor, hit Earth some 66 million years ago, causing a crater 180 km wide. The impact of the asteroid heated organic matter in rocks and ejected it into the atmosphere, forming soot in the stratosphere.

An international research team has used the Hyper Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii to find a Type Ia supernova not long after its explosion. They are the first to find solid evidence about what triggered the star to explode, which will contribute to a further understanding of supernova history and behavior.

A super-computer simulation by an international team of researchers has shown the formation of a rapidly growing star from supersonic gas streams in the early universe left over from the Big Bang. The star ends its life with catastrophic collapse to leave a black hole with a mass of 34,000 times that of the Sun.

An international team of researchers led by Kavli IPMU's Alexey Tolstov and Ken'ichi Nomoto have discovered a way to use UV light from superluminous supernovae to uncover its explosion mechanism, and used it to identify Gaia16apd as a shock-interacting supernova, reports a new study.
