RCW 86 Supernova

All Eyes on Oldest Recorded Supernova This image combines data from four different space telescopes to create a multi-wavelength view of all that remains of the oldest documented example of a supernova, called RCW 86

astronomy Filaments of the Vela Supernova Remnant – This was caused by an explosion about 11 thousand years ago, and to this day we see these strange points of light.

Filaments of the Vela Supernova Remnant The explosion is over but the consequences continue. About eleven thousand years ago a star in the constellation of Vela could be seen to explode, creating a.

La nebulosa de Spaghetti (designado Simeis 147 y Sh2-240) es un remanente de supernova extremadamente débil, bastante grande de sobre 150 años luz, situado unos 3.000 años luz de distancia en la constelación de Tauro. La violenta explosión estelar que creó la nebulosa deja atrás todo lo que queda del núcleo de la estrella original una estrella de neutrones giratoria conocido como pulsar PSR J0538 + 2817.

Supernova SNR 0509-67.5.  Call it a cosmic scene investigation. A team of astronomer sleuths has identified the trigger for a powerful supernova that exploded four centuries ago, finding it to be the collision of two white dwarf stars. The discovery settles decades of questions over the origin of so-called Type 1a supernovas, researchers said. http://www.space.com/14202-supernova-explosion-mystery-solved-aas219.html

The Case of the Missing Supernova Companion. At the center of this supernova remnant should be the companion star to the star that blew up.

Em 1987, uma estrela em uma das galáxias satélites da Via Láctea explodiu. Em 1994, o Telescópio Espacial Hubble, em órbita ao redor da Terra, teve uma imagem muito detalhada dos restos desta explosão. Esta foto, acima, mostrou anéis incomuns e inesperadas, e os astrônomos não tem certeza de como se formaram.

Supernova Halo for a Vanished Star. is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, on the outskirts of the Tarantula Nebula. This supernova occurred about light years from Earth.

The North American Nebula. This swirling landscape of stars is known as the North American nebula. In visible light, the region resembles North America, but in this new infrared view from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, the continent disappears.

NASA's NuSTAR telescope array generated the first map of radioactivity in the remnants of an exploding star, or supernova. Blue in this image of Cassiopeia A represents radioactive material. Click through to see other wonders of the universe.

It's that time of year when spooky things are hiding around every corner. And in this supernova remnant hides a pulsar called SXP 1062.

This is a composite image of the brightest supernova remnant in optical light in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The Chandra X-ray image (blue) shows million-degree gas in the center. Much cooler gas at the outer parts of the remnant is seen in.

Australian National University astrophysicist Brian Schmidt chose this Hubble photo of Supernova SN 1994D as his favorite space image, which he called "the poster child of a type Ia supernovae." The supernova is the bright spot on the lower left, shown near the galaxy NGC 4526. Schmidt won the 2011 Nobel Physics prize for his studies of distant supernovas that helped reveal the existence of dark energy.
