Hubble telescope captures a star's violent death

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,

Massive Explosion


When a star reaches the end of its life, it is triggered by a massive explosion.

The Stellar 


The stellar is located 160,000 light-years from Earth and in the constellation Dorado,

Hubble Researchers 


this cosmic remnant is an incredibly bright supernova. Hubble researchers explained

Magellanic Cloud


that it's the brightest supernova remnant within the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Supernova Debris Cloud 


This supernova debris cloud is 75 light-years wide, but that's not all it left behind.

Spinning Neutron


Scientists believe that underneath the glowing cloud is a rapidly spinning neutron star,

Own Gravity


which was created when the core of the exploding massive star collapsed under the pressure of its own gravity.

Neutron Stars


The mass of these neutron stars is around the mass of the sun, but it condensed into the area of a city.

4 Billion Tons.


In fact, a small teaspoon of material inside the neutron star would weight around 4 billion tons.
