This is a telltale signature of a Type Ia supernova--the thermonuclear explosion of a white dwarf.
Type Ia supernovae are important for research and led to the discovery of the accelerated rate of expansion of the universe.
Astronomers search for Cepheid variables in nearby galaxies that also contain a Type Ia supernova so they can compare the true brightness of both types of stars.
4 million light-years away in the M82 galaxy, making it the closest Type Ia explosion to Earth in at least 40 years.
A total of 36 isolates with the rib gene were detected mainly from serotype III but none in type Ia.
As a result, such low-nitrogen type Ia diamonds are usually erroneously identified as type IIa by SW UV transparency-based methods.
Although SJS types IA and IB both involve a mutation of the perlecan gene, type IB is a more severe condition and, therefore, is usually diagnosed earlier than type IA.
Among the topics are widest separation and the lowest mass objects among planetary-mass companion candidates around young stars, mass transfer in eccentric binaries using the binary evolution code BINSTAR, dark-spot activity on the secondary as the origin of variable mass accretion in cataclysmic variables, orbital period changes of two possible progenitors of type Ia supernovae, and eigenfunctions and Green's function for a radiative transfer equation in curvilinear geometries.
At least two of the supernovae appear to be a special type of exploding star called Type Ia supernovae, prized by astronomers because they have a consistent level of peak brightness that makes them a reliable tool for estimating distances.
Astronomers are now discovering about 1,000 per year, and Type Ia supernova observations are now calibrated to build the extragalactic distance scale.
2) Capable of being used to measure accurate cosmic distances, Type Ia SNe are particularly important to cosmologists and have been used as standardised candles to reveal the accelerating nature of the universe.
