Simulations Reveal An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars

September 29, 2014 Tags: CRD, NERSC

Certain primordial stars—those between 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our Sun, or solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects—among the Universe’s first-generation of stars—would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind. Read More »
