A new class of ultra-long-duration (more than 10,000 seconds) γ-ray bursts has recently been suggested. They may originate in the explosion of stars with much larger radii than those producing normal long-duration γ-ray bursts or in the tidal disruption of a star. No clear supernova has yet been associated with an ultra-long-duration γ-ray burst. Here we report that a supernova (SN 2011kl) was associated with the ultra-long-duration γ-ray burst GRB 111209A, at a redshift z of 0.677. This… 
Astrophysics: A twist in the tale of γ-ray bursts
TLDR
It is reported that supernova SN 2011kl was associated with the ultra-long-duration γ-ray burst GRB 111209A at z = 0.677, adding support to the recent suggestion of a new class of ultra- long-duration (longer than 10,000 seconds) γ -ray bursts.
Magnetars in Ultra-Long Gamma-Ray Bursts and GRB 111209A
Supernova 2011kl, associated with the ultra-long gamma-ray burst (ULGRB) 111209A, exhibited a higher-than-normal peak luminosity, placing it in the parameter space between regular supernovae and
Luminous supernovae associated with ultra-long gamma-ray bursts from hydrogen-free progenitors extended by pulsational pair-instability
We show that the luminous supernovae associated with ultra-long gamma-ray bursts can be related to the slow cooling from the explosions of hydrogen-free progenitors that are extended by pulsational
Ultra-long Gamma-Ray Bursts from the Collapse of Blue Supergiant Stars: An End-to-end Simulation
Ultra-long gamma-ray bursts (ULGRBs) are a distinct class of GRBs characterized by durations of several thousands of seconds, about two orders of magnitude longer than those of standard long GRBs
THE BLACK HOLE CENTRAL ENGINE FOR ULTRA-LONG GAMMA-RAY BURST 111209A AND ITS ASSOCIATED SUPERNOVA 2011KL
Recently, the first association between an ultra-long gamma-ray burst (GRB) and a supernova was reported, i.e., GRB 111209A/SN 2011kl, enabling us to investigate the physics of central engines or
GRB 111209A/SN 2011kl: Collapse of a Supramassive Magnetar with r-mode Oscillation and Fallback Accretion onto a Newborn Black Hole
Ultra-long-duration gamma-ray burst GRB 111209A was found to be associated with a very luminous supernovae (SNe) SN 2011kl. The physics of GRB 111209A/SN 2011kl has been extensively studied in the
Super-solar metallicity at the position of the ultra-long GRB 130925A
Over the last decade there has been immense progress in the follow-up of short and long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), resulting in a significant rise in the detection rate of X-ray and optical afterglows,
The diversity of transients from magnetar birth in core collapse supernovae
Strongly-magnetized, rapidly-rotating neutron stars are contenders for the central engines of both long-duration gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) and hydrogen-poor super-luminous supernovae (SLSNe-I). Models
Millisecond Magnetar Birth Connects FRB 121102 to Superluminous Supernovae and Long Duration Gamma-ray Bursts
Subarcsecond localization of the repeating fast radio burst FRB 121102 revealed its coincidence with a dwarf host galaxy and a steady (“quiescent”) nonthermal radio source. We show that the

Abstract Our understanding of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) has come a long way in the past fifty years since their first detection. We now know that GRBs arise in distant galaxies and that there are at

A very energetic supernova associated with the gamma-ray burst of 29 March 2003.
TLDR
Evidence that a very energetic supernova was temporally and spatially coincident with a GRB at redshift z = 0.1685 is reported, strongly suggesting that core-collapse events can give rise to GRBs, thereby favouring the 'collapsar' model.
THE ULTRA-LONG GAMMA-RAY BURST 111209A: THE COLLAPSE OF A BLUE SUPERGIANT?
We present optical, X-ray and gamma-ray observations of GRB 111209A, observed at a redshift of z = 0.677. We show that this event was active in its prompt phase for about 25000 s, making it the
A NEW POPULATION OF ULTRA-LONG DURATION GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
We present comprehensive multiwavelength observations of three gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with durations of several thousand seconds. We demonstrate that these events are extragalactic transients; in
An optical supernova associated with the X-ray flash XRF 060218
TLDR
The data, combined with radio and X-ray observations, suggest that XRF 060218 is an intrinsically weak and soft event, rather than a classical GRB observed off-axis, which extends the GRB–supernova connection to X-rays flashes and fainter supernovae, implying a common origin.
An unusual supernova in the error box of the γ-ray burst of 25 April 1998
The discovery of afterglows associated with γ-ray bursts at X-ray, optical and radio wavelengths and the measurement of the redshifts of some of these events, has established that γ-ray bursts lie at
A neutron-star-driven X-ray flash associated with supernova SN 2006aj
TLDR
The results indicate that the supernova–GRB connection extends to a much broader range of stellar masses than previously thought, possibly involving different physical mechanisms: a ‘collapsar’ for the more massive stars collapsing to a black hole, and magnetic activity of the nascent neutron star for the less massive stars.
Swift 1644+57: The Longest Gamma-ray Burst?
Swift recently discovered an unusual gamma-ray and x-ray transient (Sw 1644+57) that was initially identified as a long-duration gamma-ray burst (GRB). However, the 10 keV x-ray emission has
