     On March 28th of this year (2011) a very powerful gamma-ray burst was detected by NASA's Swift satellite; initially it was thought that this was evidence of an exploding star a mere 3.8 billion light years away in a constellation called “Draco.” However, generally speaking–these types of events last only a few hours.

In this instance the beam of energy has gone on for months. Using the culmination of data retrieved by Swift, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory, Joshua Bloom, assistant professor of Astronomy at University of California, Berkeley told, "This is a really, really unusual event . . . it's now about two-and-a-half months old, and the fact that it just continues on and is only fading very slowly is the one really big piece of evidence that tells us this is not an ordinary gamma-ray burst."

Bloom and his colleagues now believe, based on current data that the gamma-ray flash, labeled, "Sw 1644+57" was/is more then likely from a star being ripped apart by a massive black hole.
