NASA names constellation Godzilla
« on: October 19, 2018, 04:18:22 PM »
NASA named a constellation after the classic Godzilla movie monster, "When a massive star runs out of fuel and collapses under its own weight, or when two orbiting neutron stars spiral together and merge, a new black hole and high-speed jets may form. The result is a gamma-ray burst, the most powerful explosion in the cosmos. These monstrous blasts, which occur somewhere in the distant universe every day or so according to observations by Fermi's Gamma-ray Burst Monitor, would make even Godzilla envious".
