Hubble Telescope Captures Crab Nebula's Central Star; How It Compares To The Earth's Sun
The Crab Nebula is the most popular one of its kind or, at least, it is the most photographed. For the first time, scientists are getting an exciting look inside the cloud of gas.
As Nature World News reports, the photos of the inner workings of the Crab Nebula were taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Inside, scientists found an exploded star. Reportedly, the star is so strong that it is capable of 30 complete rotations in a single second. In addition, the force of the star is 10 billion times stronger than steel.
Much like the recently found star, the Sun was also born from a cloud of gas and dust, known as the Solar Nabula. According to Space.Com, it formed about 4.6 billion years ago. The Sun is about 5,500 degrees Celsius or 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Impressively, the core of the sun is estimated to be about 15 million degrees Celsius, which is roughly 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. NASA has stated that 100 billion tons of dynamite would need to explode every second in order to match the energy that the Sun produces.
In another statement, NASA described Crab Nebula as a cloud filled with "mysterious filaments." The space agency then went on to say that these filaments are both complex and yet appear to have less mass than what was expelled in the original supernova. The Crab Nabula was also born from the first ever recorded supernova explosion. Pulses of radiation and large waves of charged particles were also found within the Crab Nebula. These pulses and waves were embedded into its magnetic field.
Scientists were able to achieve this data by stacking numerous images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. These photos spanned over a decade, which resulted in an something that resembled a time lapse. From this technique, scientists were also able to create a 3D version of the nebula.
