Observations with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have provided the first X-ray evidence of a supernova shock wave breaking through a cocoon of gas surrounding the star that exploded. This discovery may help astronomers understand why some supernovas are much more powerful than others.

A Supernova Cocoon Breakthrough

The “Black Widow” pulsar is moving through the galaxy at a speed of almost a million kilometers per hour. A bow shock wave due to this motion is visible to optical telescopes, shown in this image as the greenish crescent shape. The pressure behind the bow shock creates a second shock wave that sweeps the cloud of high-energy particles back from the pulsar to form the cocoon.

The Black Widow Pulsar

The “Black Widow” pulsar moves at a speed of KM/hr. A bow shock wave is the greenish crescent shape. The pressure behind the bow shock creates a second shock wave that sweeps the cloud of high-energy particles back from the pulsar to form the cocoon.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy in India   Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a commonly used non-invasive procedure to treat renal stones. In ESWL, the surgeon will use shock waves to disintegrate kidney stones so they can be expelled efficiently from the urethra.  http://www.urocareindia.com/best-cost-extracorporeal-shock-wave-lithotripsy-surgery-treatment-top-hospital-surgeon-in-delhi-mumbai-chennai-india.php  #ExtracorporealShockwaveLithotripsy #ESWL #UrologySurgeryIndia…
