Supernova Remnant From a White Dwarf Star

Tycho, Supernova Remnant
This beautiful image is from the Chandra x-ray observatory of a supernova remnant within our own Milky Way galaxy. This is a very deep x-ray image with the color red representing low energy x-rays and the blue as high energy. This supernova remnant is from a White Dwarf Star leaving stripes in red that has never been seen before. This is a unique image from NASA that I thought you might enjoy.
