Cassiopeia A : New Image Of Star
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope captured a stunning new image of a star that exploded in the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A).
- Cassiopeia A is a remnant of a massive star that exploded some 340 years ago.
- It is the youngest remnant of the massive star in our galaxy known to mankind.
- It belongs to the prototypical type of supernova remnant and has been extensively studied by a number of ground-based and space-based observatories.
- The remnant spans about 10 light-years and is located 11,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.
- It gives information related to the supernovae phenomenon and its complexities.
- Supernova explosion is the explosion of a massive star.
