Analysis and opinion
We found a new type of stellar explosion that could explain a 13-billion-year-old mystery of the Milky Way’s elements
Until recently it was thought neutron star mergers were the only way heavy elements (heavier than Zinc) could be produced. These mergers involve the mashup of the remnants of two massive stars in a binary system.

Galaxies, building health equity and “crystal chemistry” is the focus of three major research projects at The Australian National University (ANU) receiving more than $9.7 million in Government funding.
In a world-first, astronomers from The Australian National University (ANU) have discovered evidence of a massive explosion that led to the destruction of a rapidly spinning, strongly-magnetized star.
Australia's spacecraft and satellites will better survive damaging radiation and extreme conditions thanks to $2.5 million in funding for improved space testing facilities at ANU.
Scientists from ANU have designed a new type of space-craft propulsion system as part of an ambitious international project that aims to explore the worlds surrounding our second nearest star, Alpha Centauri.
