An incredibly small and fantastically strange theoretical feature of the universe is too microscopic to see directly, so a team of scientists has instead looked for it by studying some of the brightest galaxies in the universe.
Some people are calling this exploding star “the hand of God.” NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array has imaged a cloud of material ejected from a star that exploded in high-energy X-rays for the first time, shown in blue
