Latest Supernova remnant G1.9+0.3 Stories
Astronomers will be reporting details about a supernova remnant known as G1.9+0.3 in the upcoming issue of The Astrophysical Journal Letters.
A new image from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory shows a supernova remnant with a different look. This object, known as SNR 0104-72.3 (SNR 0104 for short), is in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a small neighboring galaxy to the Milky Way.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have used a mathematical model that allows them to get a clearer picture of the galaxy's youngest supernova remnant by correcting for the distortions caused by cosmic dust.
An international team of astronomers have found the youngest known supernova remnant in the Galaxy. This result has implications for understanding how often supernovas explode in the Milky Way galaxy.
