A star has been sent hurtling across the galaxy after undergoing a partial supernova, astronomers say.

A supernova is a powerful explosion that occurs when some stars reach the ends of their lives; in this case, the blast was not sufficient to destroy it.

Instead, it sent the star hurtling through space at 900,000 km/hr.

Pity it couldn't make the Million.

"...partial supernova..." I didn't know that could happen. I must find out more :)

This is not the first star which survived after the nuclear blast. Scientists have seen white dwarfs that have survived supernova explosions more than once in recent years.
