This satellite galaxy, called the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC N49), is 13 billion years old, and it features delicate sheets made of gas filaments.
Let’s get started!
This image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a supernova in intricate detail.
The brilliantly-colored strands are the remnants of the supernova,
When a star reaches the end of its life, it is triggered by a massive explosion.
The stellar is located 160,000 light-years from Earth and in the constellation Dorado,
this cosmic remnant is an incredibly bright supernova. Hubble researchers explained
that it's the brightest supernova remnant within the Large Magellanic Cloud.
This supernova debris cloud is 75 light-years wide, but that's not all it left behind.
Scientists believe that underneath the glowing cloud is a rapidly spinning neutron star,
which was created when the core of the exploding massive star collapsed under the pressure of its own gravity.
The mass of these neutron stars is around the mass of the sun, but it condensed into the area of a city.
In fact, a small teaspoon of material inside the neutron star would weight around 4 billion tons.
