  • Analysis Of Gamma-Ray Bursts

    They arise from the core collapse of massive stars which reside in regions of space experiencing new and active star formation (Savaglio, 2013) and as they are intensely luminous and high in both gamma-ray emission and multi-wavelength afterglow their rate is relative to the star formation rate (Gehrels & Meszaros 2012). However, the core collapse from a supernova explosion from the death of a star that results in the formation of a neutron star is not powerful to create or explain LGRBs. Instead, a LGRB can only be explained as arising when an ultra-energetic supernova becomes a hypernova and creates a black hole that consumes matter so immediately that it releases a substantial amount of energy of the matter which is not consumed (Bennett et al., 2014). The fundamental physics of this collapse of a star and was first proposed and developed by University of California physicist Dr. Stanford Woosley and his Collapsar Model remains the leading explanation for LGRBs today (Taboada,…

  • Star Formations: The Formation Of Stars

    This is known as the “baby” star. This is the part of a stars life before they make it into the main sequence, the stage where our sun is currently in. The young star can be stuck in this stage for as many years as 100,000 or more ; it all depends on how big the star is. The protostar starts forming when colossal clouds of frigid molecular hydrogen and helium collapse because of conjoint gravity. The spark of the collapse could have been caused by a galaxy collision, or the shockwave of a…
