Caption

Supernova remnant SN 1006, Hubble Space Telescope image. This is a view of part of the overall structure. This supernova remnant was discovered in AD 1006 by Chinese astronomers. The supernova was the brightest in recorded history. Today we see X-ray emission from a ball of very hot gas (at a temperature of about 10 million degrees) expanding into the interstellar medium behind the shock wave produced by the explosion.
