From BBC: Black hole eats a star, sends radiation to Earth
Figured there'd be a pinned thread about this already, [link to www.bbc.co.uk]

"Astronomers have spied a star's swan song as it is shredded by a black hole.

Researchers suspect that the star wandered too close to the black hole and got sucked in by the huge gravitational forces.

The star's final moments sent a flash of radiation hurtling towards Earth.

The energy burst is still visible by telescope more than two-and-a-half months later, the researchers report in the journal Science.

The Swift spacecraft constantly scans the skies for bursts of radiation, notifying astronomers when it locates a potential flare."

Nothing from NASA about this, either.

Which doesn't really mean anything, but I do wonder, does NASA ever report about anything like this, unless way after fact?

Earth happened to be in the eye of the gamma-ray beam!

It is an OLD story, happened about a year ago, AND over 12 MILLION light years from Earth.
