The remnant of a star exploded as supernova 3D Model
Supernova remnants are the results of violent explosions of stars known as supernovae. This 3D model describes the distribution of the stellar debris and the blast wave resulting from a supernova explosion occurred about 1000 years ago. The extension of the remnant is about 10 parsec (about 33 light years). The model is the result of a magnetohydrodynamic simulation performed with FLASH, a parallel code for astrophysical plasmas.
