  • About 200 supernova remnants have been found in the galaxy, six of which are younger than about 1,000 years (ref. 2). Observations of these young remnants are important for understanding of the late phases of supernova evolution, and each new object should add substantially to our knowledge of the processes involved. Here I report the discovery of a supernova remnant (RXJ0852.0 − 4622), identified by its X-ray emission, at the southeast corner of the known Vela supernova remnant. The high… CONTINUE READING
