Astrophysicists explain the differences in the brightness of supernova explosions
Supernovae stand out in the sky like cosmic lighthouses. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics and at the National Astronomical Institute of Italy have now found a way to use these cosmic beacons to measure distances in space more accurately.
New predictions encourage the extragalactic search for gravitational waves from supernovae
