Astonishing Images Of Galaxies, Stars & Supernova Remnants Released By NASA

(Mayukh Saha) NASA has an X-ray observatory named after the Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. The Chandra X-ray telescope has consistently delivered some of the most astonishing astronomical discoveries. Chandra X-ray was the one that delivered the first light images of the remnants of the Cassiopeia A supernova. In 2000, some high school students accessed the data gathered from this telescope to find a neutron star inside the remnants of the IC 443 supernova too.
