Space detectives solve the most powerful mystery in the universe.
They are so bright, they are a billion billion times more luminous than the sun.
They are so distant, their light takes billions of years just to reach earth.
They are so elusive.
The world's top astronomers spent 30 years tracking down their source.
These amazingly violent explosions---or death stars---may even have the power to eradicate life in an entire galaxy.
First detected in 1967, intense outer-space gamma ray bursts puzzled astronomers for nealy three decades before an international alliance finally unlocked their secrets.
I really wonder if a gamma ray burst somewhere in our own galaxy could destroy life on earth.
