Via Wired.com’s liveblog by Alexis Madrigal:

Most Recent Super-Nova

And an excerpt:

Scientists using a combination of radio and X-rays have found the most recent supernova remnant observed in our galaxy, located about 26,000 light-years from here. It’s the youngest, most energetic supernova we know and could shed light on just exactly how the stardust we’re made of — heavier elements and all — gets created.

Cool.
