A star has been sent hurtling across the galaxy after undergoing a partial supernova, astronomers say.
A supernova is a powerful explosion that occurs when some stars reach the ends of their lives; in this case, the blast was not sufficient to destroy it.
Instead, it sent the star hurtling through space at 900,000 km/hr.
Pity it couldn't make the Million.
