A Japanese observatory has discovered glowing embers 10,000 times hotter than the Sun left behind following a supernova.
The embers are still glowing despite the event occuring thousands of years ago, the images caught by the Japanese Suzaku space observatory demonstrate the awesome energy involved in a supernova explosion that happened over 5000 light years away.
The glowing embers left behind by one of the most powerful type of explosions in the Universe have been revealed for the first time. Remnants from giant fireballs unleashed by a supernova are still glowing at temperatures 10,000 times hotter than the Sun thousands of years after the event.
