IceCube search for hidden galactic core-collapse supernovae
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
When a star dies, it succumbs to gravitational forces, collapsing into a tiny star made of densely packed neutrons or even forming a black hole that swallows everything up. As matter continues to fall into the star’s core, matter bouncing back triggers what are called core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe).  Shortly after [...]
