Theorem of a Supernova - The NuSTAR Mission

NuSTAR has provided the first observational evidence in support of a theory that says exploding stars slosh around before detonating. That theory, referred to as mild asymmetries, is shown here in a simulation by Christian Ott of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena.

In this simulation, a supernova explosion is already underway. The small circle in the center represents the material that will form the dense star at the center of a supernova remnant, called a neutron star. The bright ring surrounding it is the shock wave created in the explosion. The colors represent temperature fluctuations. When the movie starts, the explosion has “stalled out,” because the material falling back onto the neutron star has backed up, like too many cars on the freeway, blocking the shock wave from progressing.

As the explosion continues, material starts to slosh around, reenergized by particles called neutrinos. The neutrinos heat up the material more and more, causing the hot regions to rise into the cooler regions and form large bubbles in the material. Once the bubbles break through the surrounding material, it’s as if the top of a pressure cooker blows off. There’s nothing holding back the shock wave any more and the star explodes.

okay I went into the children’s place today with my 11-year-old daughter because they usually have cool shirts whenever a marvel movie comes out (although they are always in the boys department).

there was was a rocket raccoon one but she was like “eh, I’d rather have one with groot.” so I pick up the shirt next to the rocket one and I’m looking at it for a minute…

imagewhy is there NO FUCKING GAMORA ON THIS SHIRT? 

they included the ship in the background and not the one woman?

if your little angel won’t wear a shirt because it has a girl on it who is literally one-fifth of said guardians, i’m sorry but you’ve fucked up as parent, seriously. if you, as a parent, won’t buy a shirt because it has a girl on it, just… bye. goodbye, the world has no use for you, so long. 

ever get so fucking angry at something that your hands shake and you feel like you might throw up?

am i supposed to tell my daughter, “Well, there’s no female character on this shirt because the shirt isn’t even meant for you in the first place”? 

i don’t understand how this is supposed to be an acceptable answer in 2014. i really don’t.

Oh, for fuck’s sake, so a BOY SHIRT cannot have a female character on??? Female characters are only for girls??

2014, Jesus.

And why nobody is reblogging the hell out of that?
