Hubble telescope captures cosmic rays of surprising white dwarf supernova
The shredded rays of a stellar explosion glow shiny crimson in a surprising new picture from the Hubble Space Telescope.
The vibrant cosmic ribbons of fuel are the results of an explosion of a white dwarf star that reached the tip of its life, often known as a Type 1a supernova.
This supernova remnant, formally often called DEM L249, is situated within the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), which is a satellite dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way and among the many closest galaxies to Earth.
Hubble snapped this new picture of DEM L249 whereas surveying the LMC searching for surviving stellar companions of white dwarf stars that had already exploded, in accordance with a statement from NASA.
