3D Reconstruction of the Supernova Remnant Cassiopeia A
The data used to created this web app are originally published in the following papers:
Milisavljevic, D. & Fesen, R.A. 2013, ``A Detailed Kinematic Map of Cassiopeia A's Optical Main Shell and Outer High-Velocity Ejecta.'' ApJ, 772, 134
Milisavljevic, D. & Fesen, R.A. 2015, ``The Bubble-like Interior of the Core-Collapse Supernova Remnant Cassiopeia A,'' Science, 347.
Delaney, T., et al. 2010, ``The Three-Dimensional Structure of Cassiopeia A,'' ApJ, 725, 2038
The X-ray data were kindly provided by T. Delaney.
Also used in this web app is an image of Cassiopeia A made with the Hubble Space Telescope retrieved from www.spacetelescope.org. We credit NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage STScI/AURA-ESA/Hubble Collaboration. The original observations for this image were obtained from the data archive at the Space Telescope Science Institute. The data are associated with GO 10286 (PI: R. Fesen). STScI is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. under NASA contract NAS 5-26555.
