The study and analysis of stars led the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to capture the precise moment when a star explodes and disappears; the images were captured by Hubble Space Telescope, which surprised scientists and astronomers.
The astonishing moment recorded by the Hubble captured the precise moment when the star exploded and recorded its spectacular, catastrophic demise. The data recorded were complemented by other observations that had already been made since telescopes terrestrial and space.
With this information and records obtained, astronomers hope to have enough information to have an early warning system for other stars that are about to explode, as detailed by a release Ryan Foley, a researcher at the University of California in Santa Cruz, California.
NASA seeks to discover the formation of the solar system
With the information obtained from the supernova, known as NS 2020fqv, which is found in the interacting butterfly galaxies, located about 50 million light years away from the constellation from Virgo, NASA seeks to discover the formation of Solar system and the constellations.
With the data obtained from the astonishing moment in which the star explodes, the Hubble, along with NASA’s Lucy Mission and the agency itself plan to find out more about the origin of our Solar system. The star was discovered in April 2020 by the Zwicky Transient Facility in the Palomar Observatory in San Diego, California, so since then there have been numerous investigations into the star.
Supernova NS 2020fqv was being observed simultaneously by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), satellite that POT designed with the aim of discovering exoplanets, that is why astronomers decided to train the Hubble, as well as a set of ground-based telescopes, in order to capture the images of the star.
“Rarely can we examine this material very close circumstellar, as it is only visible for a very short time and we usually do not begin to observe a supernova until at least a few days after the explosion, ”he declared Samaporn Tinyanont, known as the first author of the study who was able to appreciate up close the early destruction of a star.
