Mirror, mirror in the void, who in this cosmos is the most super of all?
I am such a geek, but I cannot help but get excited about news such as these. Apparently some astro-dorks in Germany figured they would use a gas cloud in space as a kind of mirror to reflect the light coming from a supernova first observed by a 16th century astronomer Tycho Brahe. No, I am not making this up – those who saw the movie Deja Vu will have a serious deja vu – these guys from the Max Planck Institute actually saw something that somebody else saw and described over 400 years ago. Now that’s what I call a fairy tale: Snow White meets Sleeping Beauty 🙂
