Today we’ll take a look at one of the largest explosions ever observed. Supernova 1987A burst into visibility 35 years ago this week, and has revealed much about the lives of massive stars. The explosion was first spotted by Canadian astronomer Ian Shelton.
We’ll also look at the upcoming mission of Axiom-1, which will see private company Space-X send four space tourists to the International Space Station – and one of them is a Canadian. Plus, a pair of asteroids whiz past Earth, and other cool space stuff.
