Default Most powerful star explosion ever recorded

They found this a few weeks ago. Apparently it's 3 times the size of the next previous GRB (Gamma Ray Burst) ever recorded.

I was going to say Hasselhopf or Kramer from Seinfeld as biggest star to explode but it could be Charlie Sheen. Depends who you ask; A German or an American.

Tebow's 2011 season makes this star look like a pop bottle rocket.

A German would pick Hasselhoff, and also suggest he exploded earlier than most American's would guess.

Jack Nicholson exploded on some dude's windshield with a golf club once. But that was more of a short-term burst.

I knew a stripped named Star once. I think that was just her stage name, though.

I've been awaiting reports like this! Real time reports, rather than so-called detecting it millions of years after an explosion! Thank-you for this @NASA!

well, this explosion DID happen ~3.6 billion years ago...

all the stars and galaxies we see in the sky are a "snapshot" into the past as it were, we see them as they were when the light left them, not as they are now.

That is not the way I interpret the data. "Swift's detection of this burst was delayed. The satellite was moving between cosmic targets at the time of the eruption, but the spacecraft captured the explosion less than a minute after it began."

lots of ground telescopes captured it and the big ones are still cranking

I doubt anything is there right now. A GRB we see today that is 3.7 billion light years away happened 3.7 billion years ago. No doubt a black hole was born out of that explosion but with the expansion of the universe, what was right in that exact location that long ago has moved on and most likely there is nothing there. But that black hole is probably cruising around somewhere out there far far away.

the expansion of the universe is the expansion of space itself. the black hole is still at that point in space.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened..

Not exactly. I get what you are trying to say. That the black hole would be in the same spot relative to the other celestial bodies that were around it 3.5 billion years ago.

As you already stated, the universe is expanding and getting bigger so everything 3.5 billion years ago has spread out further away from it's origin. So from an origin standpoint, it's probably billions of light years from it's original origin.

Not only that, but you also have 3.5 billion years of galaxies merging which would have greatly influenced it's position relative to where it was before. Andromeda and the Milky Way are set to collide in 4 billion years. So if Andromeda is roughly 2.5 million light years away and they will collide in 4 billion years, you can imagine just how far a single star or black hole may have journeyed over 3.5 billion years if some other galaxy (larger or small) was even just a tad closer to it then we are to Andromeda. The odds are that in 3.5 billion years the galaxy it was in probably would have merged at least once in that amount of time. So it's not in the same spot, due to both origin and because of merging galaxies.
