The photo shows the residue of a star that exploded 190,000 years ago.
The light traveled for 190,000 years to reach us.
The Sun will do the same thing to us one day, after first expanding out past Mars to destroy Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars.
In a catastrophe like this we usually quickly ask "did anyone survive the catastrophe"?
That is, did any life on habitable planets in that solar system make it out before the explosion and destruction, and will we be able to do so before the time comes?
