The overall explosion causes intensely hot temperatures and high pressure, driving a chemical reaction that produces calcium.

University PR staff don't know the difference between a chemical and a nuclear reaction. Or they don't understand that ionization does not "produce" elements. I'll need to read the paper to figure out where they went wrong.

They got degrees in Art History and Sociology, that's where they went wrong.

Sorry, Subby... not in the Milky Way.

This supernova is in Messier 100, a galaxy in the Virgo cluster located roughly 55 million light years away. Still cool, though!

"By observing what this star did in its final month before it reached its critical, tumultuous end, "

It ate a lot of cheese?
