Tycho Supernova: Still Sending Shockwaves (NASA, Chandra, 12/4/08)
<Editor's Note: There's hot current news of how scientists have discovered the source of Tycho's supernova. Danish astromoner Tycho Brahe first saw this in 1572 without a telescope. It hung around for 16 months and then vanished from the naked-eye view. It's a cool story.
If you want to read a lot more about the supernova, these links will take you to a great Chandra image of Tycho's supernova taken in 2005:
