Mingus Supernova

MINGUS SUPERNOVA

Nicknamed “Mingus”, it was described at the 221st American Astronomical Society meeting in the US.

This explosive event is the result of a massive star exhausting the hydrogen and helium that fuel its nuclear fires. It is the heat from these nuclear fusion processes that prevents the star collapsing under its own weight. As the core collapses, a rebounding shock wave blows off the outer layers of the star (red) at thousands of kilometers per second. A supernova (white and blue, centre) may briefly outshine an entire galaxy.
