A study, carried out in the framework of the RadioNet3 project, discards the possibility that the progenitor of the type Ia SN 2014J might have stemmed from the explosions of a white dwarf nourished by a normal star. Were these conclusions to become generalized, the use of type Ia supernovae “cosmological standard candles” might need to be revised.
