United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NАSA) has unveiled an incredible photo depicting a stellar explosion in space. Here's what is known about this unique snapshot.

In preparing this material, the following sources were used: NASA, Wikipedia.

What is visible in the image

In the photograph released by NASA, one can see what a stellar explosion looks like.

As a result of this process, dust and debris from celestial bodies were literally "thrown" into the neighboring dwarf galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud (one of the closest to ours).

In the photo, this process somewhat resembles earthly fireworks.

It should be noted that after a star's explosion, its "fragments" can spread in space and become "building material" for other stars or planetary systems.

When and how the unique photo was captured

The recently published photo was taken with the Hubble Space Telescope a long time ago, on July 7, 2003.

It is specified that since its launch in 1990, the Hubble Telescope has fundamentally changed humanity's understanding of the Universe.

"Hubble is the most productive science mission in the history of NASA," emphasized the space agency.

Earlier, NASA showed how a day passes on Mars.
