Supernova debris shoots cosmic rays into deep space

Some of the space radiation that collides with the Earth has an explosive origin. Astronomers have detected the debris of a supernova explosion potentially capable of shooting down high-energy particles – or cosmic rays – that bombard the Earth frequently. Their new findings link shock waves and debris from dying stars with high-energy natural proton …

An amazing shock wave from a rejected star hurtling through space at 100,000 miles per hour

An amazing shock wave from a rejected star hurtling through space at 100,000 miles per hour

Zeta Oviucci was once in close orbit with another star, before it was ejected when that companion was destroyed in a supernova explosion. Infrared data from Spitzer reveals a stunning shock wave formed from material moving away from the star’s surface and hitting gas in its path. Data from Chandra shows a bubble of X-ray …
