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

A Supernova that is missing a companion star.

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.

The Tycho supernova remnant in the Milky Way, produced by the explosion of a white dwarf star in our galaxy. Low-energy X-rays (red) show expanding debris from the supernova explosion and high energy X-rays (blue) show the blast wave, a shell of extremely energetic electrons. These high-energy X-rays show a pattern of X-ray "stripes" never seen in a supernova remnant.

This image comes from a very deep Chandra observation of the Tycho supernova remnant. Low-energy X-rays (red) in the image show expanding debris from the supernova explosion and high energy X-rays (blue) show the blast wave, a shell of extremely energetic

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.

While the fictionalized Star Trek account had the planet killer slowly destroying a distant solar system, this particular “star eater” Simeis 147, an ancient supernova remnant, is very real and still exists along the Auriga-Taurus border

Faint supernova remnant of Simeis seen towards the constellation Taurus. This image is a color composite of 66 blue and red color band images from the National Geographic Palomar Observatory Sky Survey taken with the wide field Samuel Oschin Telescope

For the first time ever, astronomers have detected circularly polarized light emitted from a dying star collapsing into a black hole. This image is an artist’s impression of the collapsing event, which is known as a gamma-ray burst.
