The Small Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy located 210,000 light-years away from the Milky Way, is visible in the Southern Hemisphere, in the direction of the constellation Tucana.  A cosmic explosion image, taken by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, shows that in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a massive star exploded as a supernova, and its interior began to expand.

 Just below the center of the image is a greenish-blue swath of debris, a supernova remnant (SNR), abbreviated as “E0102”, the researchers named the listed location (or coordinates) of the celestial sphere.  taken from. Supernova remnant 1E0102.2-7219, which lies in the star-forming region of a Small Magellanic Cloud about 200,000 light-years from Earth and about 50 light-years from the edge of nebula N76, and this Small Magellanic Cloud was named by Heinz in 1956.  are known as.

The E0102 supernova, determined to be only 2,000 years old, relatively young on astronomical scales, was observed in 2003 with the Hubble Advanced Camera for Surveys. Hubble’s four filters that separated light from blue, visible and infrared wavelengths and hydrogen emission were combined with oxygen emission images of the SNR taken with the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in 1995.

E0102 is one such young supernova, allowing researchers to directly probe material from the cores of massive stars.  E0102 provides insight into how stars form, and the growth of chemical matter in their composition and surrounding region. Researchers believe that a young supernova explosion is a good option to better understand the physical.
