What's Bigger Than A Supernova ?
« on: 16/08/2007 22:45:20 »
Dearest Cosmological Connoisseurs,

This is a Supernova:



Nice isn't it ?..notice how colourful and non life threatening to earth it is ?


But there are even bigger explosions than supernovas aren't there ?...even bigger than the bean farting scene in Blazing Saddles !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6dm9rN6oTs

What are these extraordinarily unimaginable larger explosions and how much bigger are they than your run-of-the-mill supernova ?
