But for stars more than 10 times as massive as the Sun, the end is extremely violent. When its nuclear fuel runs out, the core of the star collapses, triggering a huge explosion that rips the outer layers of the star apart, blasting them outwards. The Crab Nebu…

the final frontier
This new Hubble image - One among the largest ever produced with the Earth-orbiting observatory - shows gives the most detailed view so far of the entire Crab Nebula ever made. The Crab is arguably the single most interesting object, as well as one of the most studied, in all of astronomy. The image is the largest image ever taken with Hubble's WFPC2 workhorse camera. The Crab Nebula is one of the most intricately structured and highly dynamical objects ever observed. The new Hubble image of the Crab was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and is the highest resolution image of the entire Crab Nebula ever made.

SN (supernova remnant) 1054, also known as the Crab Nebula. CLARIFICATION: Nebulae are clouds of dust in space, usually, but not always, left over from as star exploding/dying. A supernova is the actual explosion.
