Imagem da Nasa mostra cenário magnífico após explosão de supernova


Momento foi capturado pelo telescópio espacial Hubble


NASA postou no Instagram nesta sexta-feira (1º) uma imagem magnífica de uma ‘teia’ vermelha no meio de nuvens turbulentas no espaço. O fenômeno surgiu após a explosão de uma supernova, fenômeno caracterizado pela ‘morte de uma estrela’. O momento foi capturado pelo telescópio espacial Hubble.

“Este objeto está situado na Grande Nuvem de Magalhães, uma galáxia anã que fica perto da Via Láctea”, informa a agência espacial norte-americana na legenda da imagem.

EXPLOSIVE! 💥💥💥This dark, tangled web formed in a very violent fashion — it is a supernova remnant, created after a massive star ended its life in a cataclysmic explosion and threw its constituent material out into surrounding space. This created the messy formation seen in this image from our @NASAHubble Space Telescope, with threads of red snaking amidst dark, turbulent clouds. This object is situated in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy that lies close to the Milky Way. The remnant is likely the result of a Type Ia supernova explosion; this category of supernovae is formed from the death of a white dwarf star that grows by siphoning material from a stellar companion until it reaches a critical mass and then explodes. When explosions like this have a well-known luminosity, they can be used as markers for scientists to measure distances throughout the universe and learn more about what’s out there.
