MAGIC telescopes see most epic explosion

A violent explosion in a distant galaxy has broken the record for the brightest source of high-energy light in the Universe.

The light was emitted by a gamma ray burst, a brief but powerful cosmic explosion in a galaxy seven billion light-years away.

The research involved more than 300 scientists from around the world.
