This stunning visualisation of Cassiopeia A, the result of an explosion approximately 330 years ago, uses X-ray data from Chandra, infrared data from Spitzer and pre-existing optical data from NOAO’s 4-m telescope at Kitt Peak and the Michigan-Dartmouth-MIT 2.4-m telescope. The neutron star left over from the stellar blast is an artist’s illustration (Courtesy NASA/CXC/D Berry; Model: NASA/CXC/MIT/T Delaney et al.)

  1. @yatah your opinion …
    @yatah your opinion of me is worthless, your ignorance speaks for itself
    you talk alot of trash and hide your face in your videos!
    typical of a coward!

  2. @yatah fool …
    @yatah fool recognizes fool and your ego dosent fit in your own mirror, spelling comes from the inferior or intellectual side of the mind, excuse me as i am being beyond You!

  3. @wo0obly to be …
    @wo0obly to be honest, although I’m not religious, I’d rather be preparing for the day of judgement than living your sedentary lifestyle.

  4. @ …
    @SubconsciousDweller The second ‘fact’ you stated is a myth. The third is plain non-sense.

    You should lay off the shrooms.

  5. 3 Undeniable Facts …
    3 Undeniable Facts:
    1.The Universe is Infinitely Amazing!!
    2.Humans only use a minimum of 1/10 or less< of their Brain, there for Ignorant of What really exists in our Universe!
    3.Our reality is dictated by a Dualistic Law, meaning we have Pain ans Sorrows and we have Joy and Happiness! Life and Death!

    this only confirms that what ever it is that we be-LIE-ve or our species discovered is but the very tip of the Ice Berg of Information that is Really out there!

  6. @TheBeliever1989 …
    @TheBeliever1989 allah can suck my fat juicy because when your all preparing for the day of judgment witch will never come, ill be at home watching tv and eating dorritos. honestly, you really believe that some almighty deity created the universe? its we humans that created the belief of allah without any proof but a book written backward by some dumbass in a cave. islam sucks, all religion sucks and creates war, just grab some science and play some XBOX and watch some TV and eat some GRUB.

  7. @TheBeliever1989 …
    @TheBeliever1989 Dude you sound like a radical Christian. Those who believe in Christ go to Paradise and those who disbelieve will enter hell. Key word is believe. You can believe in anything dont mean its true. Knowledge is more important than belief. Its easier to believe because you do not have to use your brain to think to reason to rationalize. Might as well get rid of a mind and brain. Just believe. Dude use your brain and ask questions instead of blindly believing religious dogma.

  8. I don’t understand …
    I don’t understand how people can still cling to ideas that teach submission to a divine being that has yet to show its face to the general public, but it’s not my place to say what’s right or wrong. You believe in your holy whatever, I’ll believe in what I can see, and we’ll leave each other alone.
    Either way, YouTube is no place for religious arguments. Go find a forum somewhere.

  9. The scale of the …
    The scale of the white dwarf shoud be much smaller(10 miles diameter) compared to the supernova nebula(in order of millions of miles)

  10. The universe did …
    The universe did not come to existence by chance. It is ALLAH who created the universe and everything in it. If ALLAH would not create us, we would not be here. Therefore all praise and glory is for ALLAH, the Merciful and Almighty. ALLAH will resurrect us on the ‘Day of Judgement’. All humas will be accountable to ALLAH on that day. Those who believed and did good deeds will enter Paradise and those who disbelieved ALLAH, will enter hellfire.

    Islam is the true religion.

  11. @eDrifter1 Keep …
    @eDrifter1 Keep trying. Maybe you just haven’t prayed enough for it to fit yet. I have faith in you though.

  12. @archados because …
    @archados because 99% of religeous people are more concerned with evangelism and appearances than understanding, 99% of scientists are more concerned with proving what is not rather than what is. In simple terms, science is about the questions how and what, religeon is about the questions who and why
    The gnostic christians seemed to have had one foot in either camp without any conflict of interest., unfortunately since both sides are totally blinkered in view, what did you expect?

  13. @zlkimagenX
    give …

    @zlkimagenX
    give me proof and i will beleive

    Science is here…well guess what i beleive in
    a bible is not good enough.
