What is the most powerful thing in the universe?
Is there anything more powerful than a supernova?
A super-luminous supernova (SLSN, plural super luminous supernovae or SLSNe) is a type of stellar explosion with a luminosity 10 or more times higher than that of standard supernovae. Like supernovae, SLSNe seem to be produced by several mechanisms, which is readily revealed by their light-curves and spectra.
Which is bigger supernova or hypernova?
This is similar to a nova but the explosion is much more powerful. SUPERLUMINOUS SUPERNOVA (Hypernova): A burst 5 to 50 times more energetic than a supernova. A hypernova may or may not be associated with a powerful burst of gamma radiation.
Has there ever been a Hypernova?
Since their discovery in the 1960s, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been determined to occur randomly in the sky, at random times. Bohdan Paczynski of Princeton University proposed in 1998 that hypernovae were a way to explain GRBs. However, little is currently known about the true nature of either hypernovae or GRBs.
