Powerful Space Explosion May Herald Star's Death By Black Hole

A huge, powerful star explosion detonated in deep space last week — an ultra-bright conflagaration that has astronomers scratching their heads over exactly how it happened.
The explosion may be the death cry of a star as it was ripped apart by a black hole, scientists said. High-energy radiation continues to brighten and fade from the March 28 blast's location, about 3.8 billion light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco. [Image of the space explosion]

I love the comments.
"The bigger story is that the speed of light is no longer a limit!!!!!!!!!"
"A huge, powerful star explosion detonated in deep space last week???? Don't you mean 3.8 Billion Years ago?"
