Remnant of Supernova A Photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera Supernovae are massive stellar explosions which throw the outer layers of a star off into space The quantity of energy released by a supernova can be equivalent to the energy output of the Sun over its entire lifetime They briefly become what appears to observers as a bright new star hence the name Supernova A was first observed within hours of exploding and offered astronomers their first opportunity to test theories of supernova formation against observational evidence It occurred in the Large Magellanic Cloud a dwarf galaxy outside the Milky Way and was caused by the explosion of a blue supergiant star some times the mass of the Sun
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
