History tells, We knew and obeserve about the supernova in 185 AD, When the supernova SN 185 appeared. It is the oldest supernova ever recorded by humans. More Supernovas recorded in our milky way galaxy since that Time.
In this article we are going to know more about what is the biggest Supernova explosion? So for all the curiosity you have, let us dive straight into the topic.
What is Supernova explosion?
Whenever there is an explosion of a star and that explosion is super powerful and due to that explosion, which emits a lot of light, this whole process is called supernova and that explosion is know as supernova explosion.We have understood what a supernova explosion is.
What causes supernova?
When the lifetime of a star comes to an end then supernova occur. As the star runs out of its nuclear fuel then some of its mass starts to flow in its core. Actually core is so heavy that it cannot withstand the force of its own gravity and finally the core breaks down which results in a massive supernova explosion.
What is the biggest Supernova explosion?
According to astronauts scientists, The biggest or we can say super powerful supernova explosion occurs about 4.5 million light-years away from earth. This supernova is the most powerful supernova ever seen.
The name of the biggest supernova is SN2016aps. This supernova was first seen in February 2016 with the help of Panoramic Survey Telescopes and Rapid Response System and we are still observing it – ”Usually we can track any supernova for a few months”.
The energy released by biggest supernova is about 10 times more than the sun emits in its entire life. This explosion emits so much light that it covered its entire galaxy with light. It is shine 500 times more than a normal supernova.
Why biggest supernova occur?
Whenever a star makes a very big explosion, there is a region behind it and because of the same region, that supernova would have become very big. Here is the reason
When a massive star is about to die then it shaking off a gaint gas shell and if timing is perfect the explosion collide with the shell. then you get to see the very biggest brightness of the supernova.
When was the last supernova explosion?
Not all Supernovas are being recorded. Only the Milky Way Supernovas are in our records. The most recent Supernova was recorded in 1604. In that era, the birth and death of the stars were not discovered. Today, our scientists have discovered the formation of stars.
The next supernova is predicted 50 years from now by scientists. This supernova will be visible from the Earth. The supernova will be e visible from the telescope in the form of infrared radiation.
Why biggest supernova is differ from normal supernova?
The biggest explosion is very rare, Scientists believe that this type of massive star is 100 times more mass than the Sun at the time of birth due to intense energy.
Supernova has some properties and features which makes them different from other explosion of star.
Scientists find high amount of hydrogen in the explosion because the star that is formed is due to the merging of two low massive starts. After merging, the new star that is formed, it has a lot of hydrogen with it and high in mass.
Interesting facts about Supernova
- The size of the star is very massive in supernova. The name of the biggest supernova is SN2016aps and it occurs about 4.5 million light-years away from earth. A massive start contain high amount of hydrogen. When biggest supernova happen then the light it emits is 10 times more than the sun emits in its entire life.
- The first supernova was observed in 185 AD recorded by Chinese.
- Whenever a supernova explosion occurs around the Earth, the temperature of the Earth increases.
- When a star explodes and makes a supernova and it is not very big then he would become a nebula and neutral star.
- Supernova is the largest region of nitrogen, iron and carbon found in the earth.
- When a supernova happens, a lot of material is released and that material seems to be spread all around and their speed is 30000 kilometers per second.
