Vela Supernova Remnant - 2 by Eddie Trimarchi
Via Flickr:
This is a little more of the huge Vela Supernova Remnant, a star about 800 light years away, that exploded around 12,000 years ago, creating a vast, intricate cloud of gas and radiation, appearing to us now as roughly the size of 16-full moons, but far too dim to see anything-of without a largish telescope. Bi-colour Ha-OIII 10 hours each RGB: 15 minutes 20.25 hours total GSO RC10 @ f6 Moravian G3-11000 Baader RGB and 7nm NB Synta EQ6

Puppis-A Supernova Remnant by Eddie Trimarchi
Via Flickr:
The Puppis-A supernova remnant is the small bluish blob near the centre. It’s an expanding shell about 100 light years in diameter and around 7,000 light years away, with the light first reaching Earth about 3,700 years ago, the star exploded around almost 11,000 years ago.. We see it through the Vela Supernova remnant which is four times closer and resulted from a Supernova in the neighbouring constellation of Vela, about 2,000 earlier. Bi-colour Ha-OIII 12 hours each RGB: 15 minutes 24 hours total GSO RC10 @ f6 Moravian G3-11000 Baader RGB and 7nm NB Synta EQ6

The False Vacuum Theory:

In short it is the theory that we are in a seemingly stable region of space but in reality we are in an unstable bubble of the actual universe. This bubble could collapse at any moment and create a vacuum, completely turning us into particles to be recycled back into the universe. What do you think? Do you believe it is possible?
