Enduring 'radio rebound' powered by jets from gamma-ray burst

For George, I have been missing you, every time I see new insights on GRBs I think of our Biologos guided or nonguided discussions that made them nervous.

Astronomers using ALMA studied a cataclysmic stellar explosion known as a gamma-ray burst, or GRB, and found its enduring ‘afterglow.’ The rebound, or reverse shock, triggered by the GRB’s powerful jets slamming into surrounding debris, lasted thousands of times longer than expected. These observations provide fresh insights into the physics of GRBs, one of the universe’s most energetic explosions.

Do you mean as George, as in @gbrooks9?

Well did he? I’m only now getting back into the swing of things!
