After a massive star in the Milky Way exploded, it produced a shock wave of high-energy particles, seen here in purple. In the background, you can see stars as imaged by the Digital Sky Survey. It is estimated to be light-years away. Carl Sagan Cosmos, Space Images, Space Pics, Space And Astronomy, Amazing Spaces, To Infinity And Beyond, Deep Space, Space Exploration, Milky Way

Supernova remnant G266.2-1.2 (NASA, Chandra, 10/28/13)

G266.2-1.2 was produced by the explosion of a massive star in the Milky Way galaxy. A Chandra observation of this supernova remnant reveals the presence of extremely high-energy particles produced as the shock wave from this explosion expands into interstellar space. In this image, the X-rays from Chandra (purple) have been combined with optical data from the Digitized Sky Survey (red, green, and blue). Read entire captions/view all images…
