Abstract

A burst of eight neutrino interactions occurring over a six second interval had been observed with the IMB detector. The closeness in time of the burst to the optical discovery of Supernova 1987a suggests that the neutrinos originated from stellar collapse. The characteristics of the burst are reviewed together with a recently completed reevaluation of many aspects of the detector's response. Efforts underway to discover past and future supernovae are also briefly discussed.
