New NASA photo shows our galaxy’s ‘violent energy’

   (CNN) — NASA has released an image detailing the never-before-seen “violent energy” at the center of our galaxy, created after two decades of research. The stunning panorama was compiled using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa. Images also documented an X-ray thread known as G0.17-0.41 that researchers say suggests a mechanism that could control the energy flow, and even the evolution of the Milky Way. “The galaxy is like an ecosystem,” University of Massachusetts Amherst...

Titanium bubbles found after star explosion could help solve mystery of supernovas

CNN — Titanium bubbles found in a supernova could hold the secrets as to why some giant stars explode, a new study suggests. Researchers found titanium in the remnants of the Cassiopeia A supernova about 11,000 light-years away. When stars explode, they release their elements into space. Telescopes like the one at NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory can help find which ones Cassiopeia A released when it exploded. Cassiopeia A is a giant bubble of hot, expanding gas, and it’s the youngest known remnant from a supernova explosion, dating back 340 years ago, in our Milky Way galaxy....
