Tycho Nova Video from Chandra

This is a time elapsed video from Chandra of Supernova Type 1a Tycho. In Chandra's 15 yr mission NASA has collected several images of the Supernova and put them in a short movie
It is easy to notice material moving away from the center of the supernova, temperature changes, and if measured correctly speeds at which the material is traveling.
