A detail of a portion of a Massive Star HD192163, the Crescent Nebula . This composite X-ray (blue), optical (green and red) image reveals dramatic details of a portion of the Crescent Nebula, a giant gaseous shell created by powerful winds blowing from the massive star HD 192163 (WR 136). Gaseous wind activity of HD 192163 will likely explode as a supernova in about a 100,000 years. This image enables astronomers to determine the mass, energy and composition of the gaseous shell around this pre-supernova star.
