The historical supernova remnant (SNR) Tycho SN 1572 originates from the explosion of a normal Type Ia supernova that is believed to have originated from a carbon–oxygen white dwarf in a binary system. We analyze the 21 cm continuum, H i, and 12CO-line data from the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey in the direction of SN 1572 and the surrounding region. We construct H i absorption spectra to SN 1572 and three nearby compact sources. We conclude that SN 1572 has no molecular cloud interaction… 
The Origin of the Iron-Rich Knot in Tycho's Supernova Remnant
X-ray observations of supernova remnants (SNRs) allow us to investigate the chemical inhomogeneity of ejecta, offering unique insight into the nucleosynthesis in supernova explosions. Here we present
Two GeV-TeV Supernova Remnants without Associated Neutral and Molecular Clouds
Abstract TeV gamma ray emissions have been detected at the directions of supernova remnants (SNRs) W51C and Tycho SNR. We analyze the Hi absorption spectra towards W51C, Tycho SNR and their nearby
EXPANDING MOLECULAR BUBBLE SURROUNDING TYCHO’S SUPERNOVA REMNANT (SN 1572) OBSERVED WITH THE IRAM 30 m TELESCOPE: EVIDENCE FOR A SINGLE-DEGENERATE PROGENITOR
Whether the progenitors of SNe Ia are single-degenerate or double-degenerate white dwarf (WD) systems is a highly debated topic. To address the origin of Tycho’s Type Ia supernova remnant (SNR), SN
No hot and luminous progenitor for Tycho’s supernova
Type Ia supernovae have proven vital to our understanding of cosmology, both as standard candles and for their role in galactic chemical evolution; however, their origin remains uncertain. The
Tycho-B: an unlikely companion for SN 1572*
If some or all Type Ia SNe arise from accretion onto a massive WD from a companion, then the companion will remain in some form after the SN explosion. Tycho-B is an unusual, relatively hot star
Modelling the interaction of thermonuclear supernova remnants with circumstellar structures: the case of Tycho's supernova remnant
The well-established Type Ia remnant of Tycho's supernova (SN 1572) reveals discrepant ambient medium-density estimates based on either the measured dynamics or the X-ray emission properties. This
Discriminating the Progenitor Type of Supernova Remnants with Iron K-Shell Emission
Supernova remnants (SNRs) retain crucial information about both their parent explosion and circumstellar material left behind by their progenitor. However, the complexity of the interaction between
Dust in historical Galactic Type Ia supernova remnants with Herschel★
The origin of interstellar dust in galaxies is poorly understood, particularly the relative contributions from supernovae and the cool stellar winds of low-intermediate-mass stars. Recently, large
Observational Evidence for High Neutronization in Supernova Remnants: Implications for Type Ia Supernova Progenitors
The physical process whereby a carbon–oxygen white dwarf explodes as a Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) remains highly uncertain. The degree of neutronization in SN Ia ejecta holds clues to this process
A spatially resolved study of the synchrotron emission and titanium in Tycho's supernova remnant using NuSTAR
We report results from deep observations (∼750 ks) of Tycho's supernova remnant (SNR) with NuSTAR. Using these data, we produce narrow-band images over several energy bands to identify the regions
