NASA says it has taken pictures of the gas bands left over from the Titanic stellar explosion known as the Hubble Space Telescope supernova.

NASA praised the photo of a very rare phenomenon on Twitter. “This last photo from ASNASAHubble caught our attention. A real supernova envelope contains hotter gas, and shines brighter on X-rays than a typical Type 1A supernova. “These cosmic ribbons of gas were left behind by a Titanic stellar explosion known as a supernova.

A small white dwarf astronomical object, In the order of the size of the earth. It contains degenerate material emitting. Visible radiation. It occurs after the end of nuclear reactions in a low-medium-mass star.

“They are usually stable, but in a binary system – two stars orbiting each other – A white dwarf can pull a lot of matter from its companion by gravity, It explodes into a critical mass, ‘writes NASA.

Astronomers discovered The gas under the X-ray is hotter and brighter than that left in a typical Type 1A supernova. Researchers suspect it may be heavier than expected. “Heavy stars emit more gas – which means he would have died earlier in his life cycle,” it says. .
