Stellar New Born
A supernova is the end-point for a single star, but the origin for others. The matter expelled by a supernova replenishes the interstellar medium from which stars are born. All it takes is the shock waves from such an explosion to trigger the compres...

Animation of a Cataclysmic Binary
... d Chandrasekhar limit. The white dwarf then becomes unstable and implodes under its own weight – an event called a type 1a supernova. Unlike novas, supernovas are final; they cannot reoccur because the white dwarf is destroyed in the process, turne ...

Birth of the Solar System
What you see here is an impression of our Solar System forming, from the initial supernova that started the contraction of a gas cloud. As the cloud collapses and spins, it gets flatter. Soon, pieces of material in the disc begin to lump together (ac...

Merging Neutron Stars
Neutron stars merging. Neutron stars are the remnants of stars that have run out of fuel and exploded as supernova, eventually collapsing into a superdense core. A typical neutron star has a mass of between 1.3 and 2.1 solar masses but measures only ...
