When massive stars exhaust their fuel, they collapse and often produce the extraordinarily bright explosions known as core-collapse supernovae. On occasion, this stellar collapse also powers an even more brilliant relativistic explosion known as a long-duration gamma-ray burst. One would then expect that these long gamma-ray bursts and core-collapse(More)
We report on observations of the field of GRB 970508 made in early August 1998, 454 days after outburst, with the STIS CCD camera onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The images, taken in open filter (50CCD) mode, clearly reveal the presence of a galaxy which was obscured in earlier (June 1997) HST images by emission from the optical transient (OT). The(More)
