@NASA’s Spitzer mission reports for the first time that silica — a key ingredient in glass, concrete and sand — is formed when massive stars explode. Read more at the link in our bio: https://go.nasa.gov/2RYFIX4

This image of supernova remnant G54.1+0.3 includes radio, infrared and X-ray light.
The bright yellow point indicates strong X-ray source at the center of the supernova remnant. This is an incredibly dense object called a neutron star, which can form as a star runs out of fuel to keep it inflated, and the unsupported material collapses down on to the star's core. G54.1+0.3 contains a special type of neutron star called a pulsar, which emits particularly bright radio and X-ray emissions.
The blue and green emissions show the presence of dust, including silica.
