Chandra X-Ray Kinematics Study of Young Supernova Remnants
Prof. Sangwook Park
University of Texas at Arlington
Supernova remnants are an excellent laboratory to study fundamental subjects of modern astronomy and astrophysics such as stellar evolution and explosion. Realizing the 3-dimensional structure of supernova explosions is critical to understand the explosion physics and the nature of the exploded star. Based on the high resolution grating spectroscopy of Chandra X-ray Observatory, we can perform X-ray kinematic studies of metal-rich stellar debris of supernova explosions to address their 3-D nature. We briefly discuss such kinematic studies of supernova remnants, including our on-going studies of historical events: stellar explosions eye-witnessed in 1987, 1604, and 1572.
