A new photo from NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory reveals a supernova remnant that looks like a piece of fruity breakfast cereal floating in the Small Magellanic Cloud, one of the Milky Way's galactic neighbors. Known as E0102, this supernova remnant was created when a massive star exploded and collapsed under its own gravity. Scientists think the object is actually shaped like a cylinder, but it appears round because of the angle at which we see it. — Hanneke Weitering
