3D Simulation Reveals from observations within a supernova 11,000 light years away, based on observations from a number of telescopes.

The simulation was created for Supernova Cassiopeia A, an expanding cloud of material formed when a star exploded.

According to the daily Mail, the simulation had the advantage of placing each of the many colors in the visualization with a different length of light, allowing us to see supernova remains in all its glory.

The simulation was developed by researcher Kimberly Arcand, who works at the Chandra X-ray Observatory of NASA, using real observations of Supernova Cassiopeia A.

To innovate its technological conception.

Arcand collected data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope, as well as terrestrial telescopes at the National Observatory of Astronomy and MDM In Arizona, United States.

Supernova telescopes were captured not only by visible light, but also by gamma rays, infrared radiation, radio and ultraviolet and x-ray wavelengths.

In simulation, this was adjusted through the different wavelengths that are visible by representing them in different colors.
