Based on carefully analyzed information and data, scientists have discovered the oldest supernova ever. Over many years, scientists have been studying photos of this particular section of the galaxy and sighting the changes or inconsistencies in order to properly classify the phenomenon.

After a detected gamma-ray burst in April (second photo) that was calculated to be 13-billion-years-old, a flurry of information has lead scientist to conclude that it was a full star explosion.

Should this information be accurate, it is believed that this supernova occurred sometime at the beginning of the entire universe. Stats for Galactic Truth Seekers Trending: Older & Chilly
