Ciencia y Tecnología: SuperNova: remanentes de una super explosion

This image comes from a very deep Chandra observation of the Tycho supernova remnant. Low-energy X-rays (red) in the image show expanding debris from the supernova explosion and high energy X-rays (blue) show the blast wave, a shell of extremely energetic

Ring of Fire, Solar Dynamics Observatory’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) shows a solar prominence taken from a March 2010 eruption.

NASA’s recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is returning early images that confirm an unprecedented new capability for scientists to better understand our sun's dynamic processes.

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about Kelvin, or F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1 million Kelvin, or F).

This Nasa image captured on April shows baby stars creating chaos light-years away in the cosmic cloud of the Orion Nebula. Four massive stars make up the bright yellow area in the center of this false-color image for the Spitzer Space Telescope.

The caterpillar-shaped knot, called #IRAS20324+4057, is a #protostar in a very early evolutionary stage. It is still in the process of collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it. The object lies 4,500 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. - http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-s-hubble-sees-a-cosmic-caterpillar/#.U_Ej7_l5OSr.

Milky Way. Every star we see in the sky is part of the Milky Way, but a brighter center exists some light-years away. The Milky Way is about light-years in diameter and contains 200 to 400 billion stars.

This is the supernova SN 100, the brightest exploding star ever seen with the naked eye in recorded history

SN 1006 Supernova Remnant Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Zolt Levay (STScI) Explanation: A new star, likely the brightest supernova in recorded human history, lit up planet Earth’s sky in the year 1006 AD.
