    Super Hot Old Star

    Supernova bursts with opportunity for astronomers
    By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY
    A supernova has astronomers around the globe racing to their telescopes.

    The advent of the exploding star was heralded by a burst of gamma-ray radiation, detected Feb. 18 by NASA's Swift satellite. Three days later, scientists matched the burst to the birth of a supernova. (Related item: This week in space gallery)

    The gamma ray burst was the second closest to Earth ever detected, scientists say. The supernova is 440 million light-years away in the direction of the constellation Aries.

    "Certainly this is one of the most exciting ones, a very unique opportunity," says Swift scientist Frank Marshall of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "Hopefully, we are going to learn a lot about supernovas."

    If looks could kill, then "Death" would be my name.... I exist only to protect JD. That is the sole purpose for which I was born. And every action I take, no matter how violent or how cruel, is for the greater good of my people.

    Any poor souls who trespass against us, whether it be beast or man, will suffer the bite or be stung dead on sight by those who inhabit this land. For theirs is the power and this is the kingdom as sure as the sun does burn. So enter this path, but heed these four words; you shall never return...

    For the night is dark,...And full of terrors.
