Astronomers Detect Likely To Be The Most Powerful Explosion Ever Recorded

Astronomers have detected a big boom in the distant universe.

This is likely to be the most powerful explosion ever recorded.

And it is known as BOAD - Brightest of All Time.

The explosion was a gamma-ray burst that scientists believe was triggered by a supernova, or the death of a star, that gave way to a black hole.

It occurred about 2.4 billion light-years away and was first detected on the morning of October 9 by several X-ray and gamma-ray space telescopes.

The event, named GRB 221009A, was seen by the Gemini South telescope in Chile, operated by the National Science Foundation’s NOIRLab.

This burst is so bright and also nearby, researchers think this is a once-in-a-century opportunity to address some of the most fundamental questions regarding these explosions

That includes from the formation of black holes to tests of dark matter models.
