1. A very luminous magnetar-powered supernova associated with an ultra-long γ-ray burst.

    Nature 523(7559):189 (2015) PMID 26156372

    A new class of ultra-long-duration (more than 10,000 seconds) γ-ray bursts has recently been suggested. They may originate in the explosion of stars with much larger radii than those producing normal long-duration γ-ray bursts or in the tidal disruption of a star. No clear supernova has yet been...

  3. No supernovae associated with two long-duration gamma-ray bursts.

    Nature 444(7122):1047 (2006) PMID 17183316

    It is now accepted that long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are produced during the collapse of a massive star. The standard 'collapsar' model predicts that a broad-lined and luminous type Ic core-collapse supernova accompanies every long-duration GRB. This association has been confirmed in ob...
  4. The optical afterglow of the short gamma-ray burst GRB 050709.

    Nature 437(7060):859 (2005) PMID 16208365

    It has long been known that there are two classes of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), mainly distinguished by their durations. The breakthrough in our understanding of long-duration GRBs (those lasting more than approximately 2 s), which ultimately linked them with energetic type Ic supernovae, came fro...
  5. A very energetic supernova associated with the gamma-ray burst of 29 March 2003.

    Nature 423(6942):847 (2003) PMID 12815425

    Over the past five years evidence has mounted that long-duration (>2 s) gamma-ray bursts (GRBs)-the most luminous of all astronomical explosions-signal the collapse of massive stars in our Universe. This evidence was originally based on the probable association of one unusual GRB with a supernov...
