NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently captured an image showing a Pac-man shaped supernova (supernova having a structure like Pac-man) gulping stars. Agency released the captured image showing a supernova that looks mostly like a video game gobbler, reports Space.com.
N 63A is the name of the captured object which is a part of residues of supernovae and thus that berserk explosion in stars at their end of life due to their weight. This supernova is stationed in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMG) which is one of the galaxies one can observe from the earth with naked eyes and is at 163,000 light-years from the Milky Way.
The main thing supernovas do is that they stimulate the formation of stars and planets by exploding out gas and heavy elements, materials. Although here, as per NASA the strong waves seem to have halted star formation in the region by scattering out the nearby gases. Those gases are in the process of developing new stars.
N 63A is not much old and as soon as it gets into its final shape, it will possibly begin its star-forming region in the upcoming time, NASA adds.
The Large Magellanic Cloud contains many nebulae areas (where stars formed) in which huge gases of clouds collapsed and transformed into small stars. This Pac-man supernova is in stellar nurseries that have many stars around it, the high density of stars seems like small bullets, and those bullets are swallowed by Pac-man supernovae as in the famous video game.
