NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope captured an exploding star 11,000 light-years from Earth that resembles a tree, impressing millions around the world and its images were widely circulated on scientific and research websites.
Taking pictures of the exploding star
The British newspaper “Daily Mail” explained that the star, called Cassiopeia A (Cas A), shined brightly at a distance of about 11,000 light-years from Earth, which makes it look like an ornament or painting that was formed by the fingertips of nature, and that it is more suitable for placing it as a New Year’s decoration. Instead of putting it into the atmosphere.

NASA images show the star’s inner dust envelope, which looks like fire smoke and emits bright orange and red colors, but it is the near-infrared camera that shows the remains of the exploded star.
An explosion 340 years ago
NASA said, in a press release: The image of the star Cas A is part of an attempt to display the magic, wonder, and joy of the holiday season, adding that it is celebrating the new image from the Webb Telescope with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, after NASA’s James Webb Telescope captured images of the remains of a star. The Cas A supernova that exploded 340 years ago.
The NIRCam image shows a more detailed view of Cas A which gives off a visible purple diamond-like color but is actually ionized gas.
The truth about exploding stars
Danny Milisavljevic from Purdue University, who led the research team, said: “A star that exploded about 340 years ago, leaving behind filaments that look like tiny glass shards, is truly incredible after all these years of studying the Cas A star to now resolve these details, which provide us with “With a transformative vision of how this star exploded.”
It is noteworthy that a star explosion is a powerful mosaic event that occurs when a star runs out of fuel and collapses under huge pressure. A star explosion is a truly rare and exciting event, and is considered one of the most important physical processes in the universe. The big nuclear bang produces many amazing phenomena such as the formation of black holes or the formation of new stars. It also contributes to the distribution of heavy elements in the universe and affects the evolution of galaxies and planets.
