Latest Supernova remnant Stories
WASHINGTON, May 11, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The famous Crab Nebula supernova remnant has erupted in an enormous flare five times more powerful than any flare previously seen from the object.
Pattern of X-ray 'stripes' in supernova remnant could explain how cosmic rays are produced.
A delicate sphere of gas, photographed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, floats serenely in the depths of space.
New images from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope show where supernova remnants emit radiation a billion times more energetic than visible light.
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.
A new study unveils NGC 604, the largest region of star formation in the nearby galaxy M33, in its first deep, high-resolution view in X- rays.
About three times a second, a 10,000-year-old stellar corpse sweeps a beam of gamma-rays toward Earth. Discovered by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, the object, called a pulsar, is the first one known that only "blinks" in gamma rays.
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.
