Few things are more dramatic than the catastrophic death of a massive star. When this star went supernova in 1054 AD, its light was seen from Earth and bright enough to be seen in broad daylight for more than a month. The remains of the star shown here furiously fused gas in its core and spent its resources after only several million years. Without an internal engine, the core collapsed and momentarily released more energy than all the stars in the Milky Way galaxy!
