This is breaking news (on Earth). It happened millions of years ago in space. We have an as-yet unconfirmed supernova in the galaxy M95.
This is not our final M95 video, just a news update. Thanks to Nik Szymanek who imaged the object for us at short notice and in testing conditions (what a nuisance Mars can be).
Video features Professor Mike Merrifield and Meghan Gray.
