Caption: Hypernova. Artwork showing the moment of explosion of a massive star, known as a hypernova. This is a long-lived supernova, also known as a pair-instability supernova. This type of supernova blasts the entire star into the surrounding space, unlike ordinary supernovas that leave a neutron star or black hole. This sort of explosive death occurs in stars with a mass more than 150 times that of the Sun. This artwork and sequence (C002/3781 to C002/3785) are based on supernova SN2006GY.
