Discovery of the Rare Supernova Relic found at the core of our Milky Way
NASA and much similar organization like it continuously keeps an eye on the happenings that occur outer space for their research and development.
NASA is the leading among all the organizations in the world. They have one of the best devices around the world for research and development in the field of Astronomy.
With the help of these devices, they are able to capture and sense faraway stars, planets, and galaxies.
In the past few years, there have been some amazing discoveries by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Recently there has been an amazing discovery by NASA which has amazed the world. This is an amazing discovery by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory where they found the remains of the supernova relic which would have exploded many years ago. They found some small remnants of that rare supernova relic. It is assumed that this Supernova may be located near the Sagittarius A (Sgr A East), a supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Supernova is a stellar explosion occurred when a star explodes. It happens when any star completes its life cycle. A supernova occurs at every part of the Universe but the stars are so far that they do not create any effect on the planets.
There are many types of supernovas occurring in space. And in the past few years, there have been many type Lax supernovae found in other galaxies but the one discovered is a type la supernova. These types of explosions are also called white dwarf explosions because they create such small parts whose mass would be the same as on earth and size same as the sun.
According to scientists, the discovered supernova is the nearest supernova ever known to earth. They are not sure about this thing so they are running some experiments that might be helpful to decide its age and distance from the earth.
They are experimenting with certain thermonuclear reactions that replicate the actual supernova explosion which helps them to study the newly discovered supernova relic and find the inference between the type la and type lax supernova.
These experiments require time and a lot of resources to be completed so the result would take time to create any conclusion. Therefore we can only rely on the observational findings of NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.
