A physical explanation for why GRB-SNe are standardizable candles is not immediately obvious.
Nevertheless, it appears from independent studies using different approaches that GRB-SNe are standardizable candles.
In the context of SNe Ia, which are, of course, also standardizable candles, their LCs are also powered solely by the radioactive decay of nickel and cobalt, the amount of which determines the LC's peak brightness and width.
Solidifying their role as standardizable candles and cosmological probes requires both more work and considerably more events.
