Astronomers Observe Supernova & Find They’re Watching Reruns

  1. Mar 5, 2015 #1
    Here is a link to an interesting article I wanted to share with the community. It talks about how astronomers are watching the same supernova over and over again due to gravitational lensing. The data they are gathering will supposedly shed new insights into dark matter as well.
