Incredible Timelapse of a Supernova’s Life Over the Last 25 Years

Supernova 1987A first appeared in February of 1987 and has been one of the most studied object in the history of astronomy.

????It was the brightest supernova to appear up in the sky since 1604 and now this timelapse shows the supernova over a 25 year period.

????The timelapse depicts the cataclysmic death of a giant blue supergiant star the resulting shockwave.

????And an accompanying paper published in the Astrophysical Journal, says that the expanding remnant is not a ring like Saturn’s... ????But more like a donut, a form known as a torus.

????Not only that but researchers also say the shockwave has picked up speed because the torus has punched through the debris ring.

????Supernova 1987A sits some 168,000 light-years from Earth in a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way.
