1a Supernova Remnant This undated photo shows a classic type 1a supernova remnant. Researchers Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the United States and US-Australian Brian Schmidt won the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize on October 4, 2011 for their research on supernovae.

Cool colored hlaf sleeve tattoo - It’s 3D effect could make you feel like you’re in space yourself, marveling at the amazing nebula, bright supernova and eerie calmness of the other parts of the universe. It could also keep you asking for more wonders.
Cygnus Loop Nebula Wispy tendrils of hot dust and gas glow brightly in this ultraviolet image of the Cygnus Loop nebula. The nebula lies about 1,500 light-years away, and is a supernova remnant, left over from a massive stellar explosion that occurred between 5,000 to 8,000 years ago. The Cygnus Loop extends over three times the size of the full moon in the night sky, and is tucked next to one of the "swan's wings" in the constellation of Cygnus…
Far away, long ago, a star exploded. Supernova 1994D, visible as the bright spot on the lower left, occurred in the outskirts of disk galaxy NGC 4526. Supernova 1994D was not of interest for how different it was, but rather for how similar it was to other supernovae. In fact, the light emitted during the weeks after its explosion caused it to be given the familiar designation of a Type Ia supernova
