Crab Nebula 11 x 14 Print by Bruce Card using Kodak metallic paper with polystyrene backing. Frame and hanging materials not included.
The Crab Nebula (also known as M1) is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula in the constellation of Taurus. The nebula was the first astronomical object identified with a historical supernova explosion. The nebula lies in the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way galaxy, at a distance of about 6,500 light years from Earth. It has a diameter of 11 light years. It is expanding at a rate of about 930 miles a second. At the center of the nebula lies the Crab Pulsar, a neutron star 17–19 miles across with a spin rate of 30.2 times per second, which emits pulses of radiation from gamma rays to radio waves.
