A Star’s Makeover!

These pictures show a star before and after it has had a radical makeover. The ‘before’ picture on the left is an artist’s drawing that shows where the different chemicals that make up the star are found. On the right, a new X-ray photo of the star, which was taken with a telescope in space, shows how the its chemical make-up has been totally transformed following a massive explosion that blew away the star’s outer parts!
