The core collapse of rapidly rotating massive ∼ 10M stars (“collapsars”), and resulting formation of hyper-accreting black holes, are a leading model for the central engines of long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRB) and promising sources of r-process nucleosynthesis. Here, we explore the signatures of collapsars from progenitors with extremely massive helium cores & 130M above the pair-instability mass gap. While rapid collapse to a black hole likely precludes a prompt explosion in these systems…
