A beautiful death
When a star like our sun uses up all of the hydrogen in its core, it becomes what is called a “planetary nebula.” The star sheds its outer layers of gas, leaving behind a hot core. This composite image of NGC 2392 includes data from NASA’s Chandra Space Telescope, showing the location of million-degree gas near the center of the planetary nebula in pink. Readings from the Hubble Space Telescope - colored red, green, and blue - show the intricate pattern of the outer layers of the star that have been ejected.
