supernova remnant (full sphere) 3D Model
Structure of a supernova remnant at 500 yr.
The green contour shows the edge of the ejecta (contact discontinuity), subject to the Rayleigh-Taylor instability. The translucent purplish inner and outer contours mark the position of the reverse and forward shocks.
Another version shows only one octant to better see the layering.
Simulations published in Ferrand et al 2019 using as initial conditions the thermonuclear model N100 from Seitenzahl et al 2013
