Suzaku 'post-mortem' gives insight into Kepler's supernova Apr 9, 11:02 am
Washington, April 9 (ANI): An analysis of X-ray observations from the Japan-led Suzaku satellite has concluded that an exploding star observed in 1604 by the German astronomer Johannes Kepler held a greater fraction of heavy elements than the sun.
Yellow supergiant star's supernova explosion detected Apr 7, 10:17 am
