Stellar explosion displays massive carbon footprint

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/stellar_explosion_displays/

While humans are still struggling to get rid of unwanted carbon it appears that the heavens are really rather good at it. New research by astrophysicists at the University of Warwick has discovered that a mystery stellar explosion recorded in 2006 may have marked the unusual death of an equally unusually carbon-rich star.
