Quotes

...away from its companion star through the wind of particles that flows away from its surface," NASA officials stated on the Chandra website. "If this result is confirmed, DEM L241 would be only the third binary containing both a massive star and a neutron star or black hole ever found in the aftermath of a supernova."
...It consists mostly of neutral hydrogen atoms. A shorter gaseous component leads the Magellanic Clouds and is, therefore, called the Leading Arm. "This is the first credible evidence of stars associated with the Leading Arm" David Nidever from University of Michigan was quoted as saying...
...Matsuura. "Carl Sagan once said that: 'We are all made of star-stuff'. These results will help us understand how that material reached us!"
