Taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the image shows brightly colored supernova remnant fragments, similar to plumes of smoke and sparks from hot fireworks, these fragile filaments are actually the debris sheet of a stellar explosion, and The Milky Way’s satellite is the brightest remnant in the Milky Way’s Large Magellanic Cloud, located approximately 160 000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Dorado, known as DEM L 190 or LMC N49. Researchers created this image using data from two different astronomical probes, using Hubble’s retired instrument Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), which has now been replaced by the more powerful Wide Field Camera 3 Is.

 

The researchers took data from two studies of WFPC2, the first using DEM L 190 as a natural laboratory in which the researchers studied supernova remnants and the tenuous mixture of interstellar gas and dust. Second study To pinpoint the origin of the soft gamma-ray repeater, the researchers used the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), an astronomical object hidden in the soft gamma-ray repeater DEM L190, which emits gamma-rays and Emits large bursts of X-rays.

 

DEM L 190 is the remnant of a massive star that ended in a supernova explosion, whose light reached Earth thousands of years ago. DEM L 190 may be the site of a new generation of star formation, as our Sun and Planets are formed from the debris of supernova.
