Space Latest News: Everyday something new keeps happening in the interesting world of the universe. An astronomer from Australia has taken such a picture for the first time, seeing that even space scientists are stunned. Never before had the explosion of a giant star been captured on camera. That too the star, which is 100 times bigger than the Sun.
Astronomers of Australia have presented the picture of the historical moment to the world. In this supernova picture, a loud burst of light can be clearly seen and the waves emanating from it before the explosion in the star are also visible. Astronomer Patrick Armstrong of the Australian National University (ANU) says that this phenomenon is called the shock cooling curve. This will also make it easier for us to understand that some kind of star explodes.
got so much information for the first time
Patrick Armstrong says this is the first time anyone has provided such detailed information on the shock cooling curve. We are more interested in knowing how the brightness of the light suddenly changes before the explosion. The team of ANU made this huge discovery using NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope. Armstrong said, ‘In the early stages, supernovae happen very fast. It is very difficult to record it with most of the telescopes in the world.
New model will help identify stars
The model prepared by ANU with this picture helped to identify such exploding stars, which form supernovae. They believe that it may be a very rare yellow supergiant. This new model has been named SW 17. According to the news of DailyMail, astrophysics Brad Tucker said that this new model will help in identifying other such stars, which become supernova.
what is supernova
According to NASA, a supernova is the largest explosion ever seen by humans. Each blast is a very light and very fast explosion. This is very important because it is believed that most of the elements found in the universe are made from this. Researchers want to understand supernovas because it can reveal how the universe was created. The image used by the international team of ANU astronomers and researchers was taken with the Kepler telescope in 2017. Later its service was stopped.
