3-d video from NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory. It shows the explosion of SN 2006gy. he extremely massive star shed some of its outer layers in a large eruption prior to its violent collapse. The explosion then plows into the expelled cooler gas, creating a brilliant light show. Astronomers think Eta Carinae in the Milky Way could explode in the same way at any time.
