About this design
NASAs Crab Nebula
This is a mosaic image, one of the largest ever taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of the Crab Nebula, a six-light-year-wide expanding remnant of a star's supernova explosion. Japanese and Chinese astronomers recorded this violent event nearly 1,000 years ago in 1054, as did, almost certainly, Native Americans. The orange filaments are the tattered remains of the star and consist mostly of hydrogen. The rapidly spinning neutron star embedded in the center of the nebula is the dynamo powering the nebula's eerie interior bluish glow. The blue light comes from electrons whirling at nearly the speed of light around magnetic field lines from the neutron star. The neutron star, like a lighthouse, ejects twin beams of radiation that appear to pulse 30 times a second due to the neutron star's rotation. A neutron star is the crushed ultra-dense core of the exploded star. The Crab Nebula derived its name from its appearance in a drawing made by Irish astronomer Lord Rosse in 1844, using a 36-inch telescope. When viewed by Hubble, as well as by large ground-based telescopes such as the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope, the Crab Nebula takes on a more detailed appearance that yields clues into the spectacular demise of a star, 6,500 light-years away. The newly composed image was assembled from 24 individual Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 exposures taken in October 1999, January 2000, and December 2000. The colors in the image indicate the different elements that were expelled during the explosion. Blue in the filaments in the outer part of the nebula represents neutral oxygen, green is singly-ionized sulfur, and red indicates doubly-ionized oxygen. Français : Cette image, une des plus grande de la Nébuleuse du Crabe jamais prise par le télescope spatial Hubble de la NASA, est en réalité une mosaïque de plusieurs clichés. La nébuleuse s'étend sur une distance de six années-lumière et est composée des restes de l'explosion d'une supernova. Les astronomes chinois et japonais ont observé cette violente explosion il y a environ un millénaire, en 1054, comme l'ont certainement également fait les indiens d'Amérique. Les filaments d'orange sont les restes en lambeaux de l'étoile et se compose principalement d'hydrogène. L'étoile à neutrons qui tourne rapidement sur elle-même, intégrée dans le centre de la nébuleuse, est la dynamo alimentant l'intérieur de la nébuleuse de l'étrange lueur bleuâtre. La lumière bleue provient des électrons tourbillonnant presque à la vitesse de la lumière autour de lignes du champ magnétique de l'étoile à neutrons. L'étoile à neutrons, comme un phare, expulse des faisceaux de rayonnements jumeaux qui semblent battre 30 fois par seconde en raison de la rotation de l'étoile à neutrons. Une étoile à neutrons est le noyau écrasé ultra-dense de l'étoile qui a explosé. L'image est formée de l'assemblage de 24 prises individuelles de la Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 datant d'octobre 1999, janvier 2000 et décembre 2000. Les couleurs de l'image indiquent les différents éléments qui ont été expulsé lors de l'explosion. Le bleu dans les filaments de la partie extérieure de la nébuleuse représente l'oxygène neutre, le vert est le souffre ionisé I, et le rouge indique l'oxygène ionisé II.
