Fast neutrino oscillations may hold key to supernovae formation

According to a study from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research,fast neutrino oscillations could be the driving force behind why some stars explode forming supernovae at the end of their lives. A supernova is the explosion of a star.It is the largest explosion that takes place in space.Supernovas are often seen in other galaxies.But supernovas are… Continue reading Fast neutrino oscillations may hold key to supernovae formation

Meteorite sheds light on the Sun’s infant years
