  • Since, in general, GRBs are colossal explosions of energy triggered by the collision of very massive and compact objects such as neutron stars or black holes, or by the explosion of incredibly powerful supernovae, or hypernovae, one may think that these bursts are perceived as faint just because they take place very far away from us, in the remote corners of the Universe.

  • So you have perhaps a chicken and the egg problem: is it that you have more massive stars when you have lower metals, or do you need lower metals to get hypernovae?
