Horizon – The Death Star

Out in depths of deepest space lurks a force of almost unimaginable power and ferocity. Explosions of extraordinary violence, are blasting throughout the Universe every day. If one ever struck our Solar System it would irradiate and shower the Earth with a lethal blast of gamma radiation destroying the human species and seriously damaging our planet’s biosphere.

For years no one could work out what was causing these awesome explosions. Now scientists think they have identified the culprit. It’s the most extreme object ever found in the Universe; they have christened it a ‘hypernova’.

Could these explosions perhaps be the answer to Fermi’s Paradox and explain why it appears that humans may be alone in the universe.
