Summary

Beware of danger! In the vastness of outer space there are disasters of an unimaginable violence like the fusions of black holes or the explosions of giant stars. Recently, astrophysicists have been able to detect the ultra-energy particles produced in these cosmic cataclysms. And learn more about the violent side of our universe.
