The remnant of a star exploded as supernovaYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D 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).
MHD simulation performed with the FLASH code.
