Hubble telescope captures images of star explosion
Washington: Hubble Space Telescope has been able to capture a star explosion, forming supernova SN 2013ek, in spiral galaxy NGC 6984.
The supernova is visible in this image as a prominent, star-like bright object just slightly above and to the right of the galaxy`s center.
SN 2013ek is a Type Ib supernova, which is caused by the core collapse of massive stars that have shed - or lost - their outer layers of hydrogen.
Type Ic supernova e are thought to have lost more of their outer envelope than Type Ib, including a layer of helium.
