    In 1901, the star GK Persei, 1,300 Lights Years from Earth, exploded. Images of the remnant (Nova Persei 1901) by the Isaac Newton Telescope and the Nordic Optical Telescope in Spain spliced together allow a 3-D model to be created.

  • Cool.

    Accidentally posted my original cool in the wrong thread. So, I guess I'll add to it...

    I love living in an age where tech evolves exponentially from decade to decade. Imagine what this video will look like in another ten+ years.

    Simply amazing.
