Supernova Remnants




Stars, with a mass bigger then 10 times the mass of our Sun, will end up as a supernova explosion. The result is that the core will collapse, to a neutron star or even a black hole, and the layers will be blown away with incredible speed. These expanding layers will slow down and become visible, forming "Supernova Remnants" as we know them. Supernova remnants represent the violent "life end stadium" of stars with a mass bigger then 10 Solar masses.
