  • A critical comparison of estimates for the rates of hypernovae (HNe) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is presented. Within the substantial uncertainties, the estimates are shown to be quite comparable and give a galactic rate of 10-6 to 10-5 yr-1 for both events. These rates are several orders of magnitude lower than the rate of core-collapse supernovae, suggesting that the evolution leading to an HN/GRB requires special circumstances, very likely due to binary interactions. Various possible binary… CONTINUE READING
