DESCRIPTION

In a distant galaxy in the constellation Hercules, a gigantic black hole has torn apart a giant star. This is shown by extensive observations with several observatories, reported by an international, DESY-led research team in the journal Physical Review Letters. The cosmic catastrophe produced a glistening “dust echo” in the infrared range after several months. In addition, the neutrino telescope IceCube in Antarctica may have picked up a particle from the shredded star.
