Lift-off for Nasa space telescope
from the bbc:
gamma ray bursts release about the same amount of energy in one second as a star like the Sun will release in its 5-10 billion-year lifetime.
and the sun releases enough energy in just a single second to power the united states for some 9 million years..., so it's impossible to really comprehend just how powerful these gamma ray bursts are.
