Scientists are making James Cameron proud with their new 3-D imagery... Using state of the art tech and a Huge Telescope, they were able to view not just a star, but an exploding star in 3-D.
....hit link below for the 3-D video of said star.
Astronomers used the new SINFONI instrument on the VLT, a special near-infrared spectrograph that affords a stunning level of detail. Adaptive optics systems helped counteract the atmosphere’s blurriness while astronomers used a technique called integral field spectroscopy to study the supernova’s core.via popsci
