APOD: Supernova Remnant Puppis A (2014 Sep 12) Composite Image Credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/IAFE/ G. Dubner et al., ESA/XMM-Newton Infrared: NASA/ESA/JPL-Caltech/GSFC/IAFE http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140912.html Explanation: Driven by the explosion of a massive star, supernova remnant Puppis A is blasting into the surrounding interstellar medium about 7,000 light-years away. This remarkable false-color exploration of the complex expansion is based on the most complete X-ray data set so far from the Chandra and XMM/Newton observations, and infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope. In blue hues, the filamentary X-ray glow is from gas heated by the supernova's shock wave, while the infrared emission shown in red and green is from warm dust. The bright pastel tones trace the regions where shocked gas and warmed dust mingle. Light from the initial supernova itself, triggered by the collapse of the massive star's core, would have reached Earth about 3,700 years ago, though the Puppis A supernova remnant remains a strong source in the X-ray sky. http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201321401 http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.1275 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140912 #APOD
