Supernovae and the Interstellar Medium

  • L. Woltjer (a1)

Extract

The nature of the supernova event is still poorly understood. A variety of models has been proposed and the interpretation of the observations remains ambiguous. About all that is certain is that in the supernova event much of the matter is ejected at speeds of typically 10 000 km sec−1 and that about 1049 erg of visible light is emitted. The amount of matter ejected and the bolometric correction to be applied to the optical radiation are very uncertain. The discovery of a pulsar in two supernova remnants (Crab Nebula and Vela X) suggests that frequently a neutron star or other condensed object results following the outburst.
