Propagation of Supernova Blast Waves through the ISM

Out of curiosity, I wanted to see what happens when the rotating plane makes an "infinite" number of rotations and was blessed with this supernova blast.
The rotation steps are increased exponentially to avoid watching rotating boxes for hours.

Hubble telescope has captured images of the first ever predicted supernova blast, which actually happened 10 billion years ago. On Dec 11, astronomers not only imaged a supernova in action, but also saw it approximately when and where they had predicted it would be. Astronomers are now eager to see what will be the next surprise the ongoing Hubble Frontier Fields programme will bring to light.

Supernova blast bonanza in nearby galaxy

The NuSTAR observations point to a possible solution to the puzzle of how stars detonate. The fact that the titanium -- which is a direct tracer of the supernova blast -- is concentrated in clumps at the core supports a theory referred to as "mild asymmetries." In this scenario, material sloshes about at the heart of the supernova, reinvigorating a shock wave and allowing it to blow out the star's outer layers.

In the second observation taken almost a year later, there is much less absorption of X-ray emission, indicating that the blast wave from the explosion has broken out of the surrounding cocoon. The Chandra data show that the gas emitting the X-rays has a very high temperature -- greater than 100 million degrees Kelvin – strong evidence that it has been heated by the supernova blast wave.
