Cosmic Blast
A supernova explosion destroying a system of planets
Cosmic Blast
A giant star, reaching the inevitable end of its fuel supply, explodes in a tremendous explosion – brighter than a hundred billion stars – called a supernova. The force from the blast throws the remains of the star deep into space, where they will one day recollapse to form a star once more. Nature is wonderful at recycling. Here we see the blast from a distant planet and moon orbiting the former star.
