News Story US 708: Hypervelocity Star Ejected by Supernova Breaks Galactic Speed Record I recently posted about a link about a hypervelocity globular cluster. Today a story comes out discussing the fastest known hypervelocity star. SDSS J093320.86+441705.4 It is a white dwarf star apparently ejected by a supernova. I used Galaxy Zoo tools to get this information and thought it might be good to share it with you, for fast reference. Here is the location: 09 33 20.85 +44 17 05.8 See http://skyserver.sdss.org/dr8/en/tools/explore/obj.asp?id=1237657629516759131 and click on the spectrum, or image, or SMBAD etc. Have fun!
