  • Despite their importance, details of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) remain elusive. X-ray measurements of the element distributions in supernova remnants (SNRs) offer important clues to understanding the explosion and nucleosynthesis mechanisms for SNe Ia. However, it has been challenging to observe the entire ejecta mass in X-rays for young SNRs, because the central ejecta may not have been heated by the reverse shock yet. Here we present over 200-ks Chandra observations of the Type Ia SNR G344.7… CONTINUE READING
