Supernovae

This happened thousands of years ago

Your New Year party may have brought in 2010 with a bang, but compared with the collision of two supernovae above it was perhaps slightly insignificant.

The remains of the supernovae have been photographed by special, new telescopes and some parts are 10,000 times hotter than the Sun.
