The Carina Nebula, a star-forming region in the Sagittarius-Carina arm of the Milky Way, lies 7,500 light years from Earth. The Chandra X-Ray Observatory has detected more than 14,000 stars in the region. Chandra’s X-ray vision provides strong evidence that massive stars have self-destructed in this nearby star-forming region. Researchers have observed a deficit of bright X-ray sources. Also, the detection of six possible neutron stars, the dense cores often left behind after stars explode in supernovas, gives additional evidence of increasing supernova activity in Carina. Previous observations had only detected one neutron star there.
