Slashdot: News for nerds, stuff that matters: "Science: Huge Star Quake Rocks Milky Way

SJrX writes 'The BBC is reporting that scientists have detected 'the biggest explosion observed by humans within [the past 400 years]'. The explosion luckily occured about 50,000 light years away form us, on the far side of the Milky Way, as the article goes on to say that had the explosion been within 10 light years of us, it 'would possibly have triggered a mass extinction.''
