Posted October 19, 2018 05:02:52When the supernova HIC 141369 is discovered, it will become the first to have produced a giant supernova.
The star in question is a supernova remnant, a remnant of a collapsed star, and a giant red giant.
This star exploded and exploded with a blast of gamma rays and supernovae.
“This is the first time a super-massive star that exploded into a supernovai in this way has been observed,” said lead researcher David Lipsky, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Lipsky and his team have been observing the remnants of HIC141369 for the past four years.
They have been studying it closely to learn more about its formation.
“It’s the first supernova that has exploded into this kind of a supermassive star,” Lipskys said.
According to Lipski, the star in this case is a red giant and about 40 times as massive as our sun.
It was discovered on July 12, 2020, and was named for the constellation of the same name.
The star is currently about 3,000 light-years from Earth.
“We see the explosion as it’s starting to get brighter and we’re getting very close,” Lippys said, referring to the star’s location on the sky.
“And when it’s actually starting to go supernova we can actually see the supernovas very early on, and then they become really huge.”
The scientists have been monitoring the star to understand the details of its early stages.
They have been measuring the stars brightness to see if it was a supergiant or not.
“What we’re trying to understand is how fast it’s exploding and how long it’s going to be going supernova before it blows up,” Lipys said about the stars age.
“So we’re looking at the amount of time between the explosion and when it goes supernovæ, and we can look at the age of the star as well.”
When a star explodes, it produces intense light.
That light travels through space and can travel long distances.
The supernova remnants produced by HIC-141319 will be bright and hot.
Lipsks team is trying to figure out what happens to the light traveling through space.
When the star explodes it produces the most intense light that is visible to the naked eye.
This intense light will be visible for about 1.5 million years.
When the debris from the explosion is spread out over a million years, it is called a coronal mass ejection.
Lipskis team has been measuring this light.
They also have been analyzing the data to learn about the star and its formation history.
Lippys and his colleagues have been collecting the data for the last four years to understand how the stars birth and death occurred.
This is one of the largest supernova remnants ever found, Lipskinys said.
“We’re using the data we’ve collected so far to see how this supernova explosion is evolving in the universe,” Lipperys said adding that the data has helped determine the formation of the super-nova remnant.
During this time, the debris will have traveled about 11 billion light years.
Lippks team plans to use the data they’ve collected to determine the age and other details about the explosion.
“I think it’s really important for us to understand exactly what’s going on at that time, to understand what it’s like to be around a star that is this large,” Lippi said.
“I think that’s really the biggest thing we’re doing.”
