Tycho Supernova Remnant

Tycho supernova remnant

A long observation of Tycho has revealed a pattern of X-ray ‘stripes’ never seen before in a supernova remnant. The stripes are seen in the high-energy X-rays (blue) that also show the blast wave, a shell of extremely energetic electrons. Low-energy X-rays (red) show expanding debris from the supernova explosion.
