The title is a little misleading. The video is not about satellite voyager witnessing the death of a star. The video is about a visual depiction of satellite voyager witnessing the death of our Sun in the future. That is, assuming that our voyager satellite does live to the point where our sun dies.

Scientifically completely wrong. At such scales, things take millions to cool down - sun can't suddenly go black, where would all the heat go? And pieces can't just slowly blow off, gravity is still there, and when the star dies, the inner parts collapse, and the outer parts do get blown away by the pressure of the light inside, but that is a violent explosion, not crumbling of ashes just like some common Voldemort.

The title doesn't make any sense.

1.Voyager is not a satellite, because it has no orbit
2.That's not how a Super Nova happens.
3.This video is dedicated to Arjan Groot, who was a graphics designer.
4.It's a tribute video to that graphic designer and has nothing to do with voyager or stars or anything related to science.

When I saw the video my heart raced thinking voyager came back from the dead showing us some great discovery. Well done, OP, you ruined it.

I just find it amusing how the probe is flying backwards. The dishes on such probes point toward where they came from so they can send and receive data from their origin.

The greatest part of this video is the music they chose.

In this video, small debris reaching the "camera" so fast, it would mean particles or parts travel at the speed of light or something... explosions don't do that :/

Besides all the comments above, the main reason I don't like this animation is because it strengthens ones false perception of sizes... most people don't know or couldn't comprehend that the Sun could contain 1 MILLTON Earth planets. These stars are so huge that an explosion would seem SLOW-MOTION to us. Yet this video makes it look like it's the size of a continent or less.

The human brain is smart enough to guess something's size and attributes based on how it interacts with its surrounding.
If you saw a ball rolling down a mountain in the distance, you would automatically perceive it as a certain size based on how gravity seems to affect it....that's why avalanches or a suicidal person faling from a huge building appear slow as well, when in reality it's just the enormous sizes... now scale it up to the size of stars, and everything (explosions etc) would be almost stationary I think

#14: I asked "Shazam" App for you, (available free of charges on iPhones, iPods, iPads and on Android devices) it answered: "The Lost Button" by "Black Eagle Child"

Sad video, but well done, it's scientifically wrong, I agree with the others. Means, for me: everything dies so give money for research against cancer.
