'chameleon' supernova challenges notions about how stars evolve


a perplexing "chameleon supernova" is challenging the way astronomers study m ive star explosions.  when some stars reach the end of their lives, they explode in a bright stellar event called a supernova, releasing material created in the heart of the star out into the universe. there are different types of supernova explosions, and astronomers generally cl ify these powerful outbursts based on the presence of hydrogen.   "while stars begin their lives with hydrogen fusing into helium, large stars nearing a supernova death have run out of hydrogen as fuel," nasa officials said in a statement. "supernovae in which very little hydrogen is present are called 'type i.' those that do have an abundance of hydrogen, which are rarer, are called 'type ii.'"
