BBC The Sky at Night – Stars: A Matter of Life and Death (2020)

BBC The Sky at Night 2020 Stars A Matter of Life and Death

The Sky at Night team explore the life and death of stars. Chris Lintott investigates the strange dimming of Betelgeuse, which caused some speculation that it might be about to explode into a supernova. And Maggie Aderin-Pocock reports on the recent discovery of the biggest and brightest supernova ever observed.

Lucie Green discovers how historical drawings that pre-date the invention of the telescope are helping us to predict solar activity, and Pete attempts to photograph our very own star, the Sun.

The team also pay tribute to pioneering astronomer Margaret Burbidge, who died on 5th April 2020 at the age of 100, whose work led to the understanding that we are all made of stardust.
