I just saw this article and thought I would share. I also found a video of the Supernova 1987A. Very cool!

Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope have for the first time obtained a three-dimensional view of the distribution of the innermost material expelled by a recently exploded star. The original blast was not only powerful, according to the new results. It was also more concentrated in one particular direction. This is a strong indication that the supernova must have been very turbulent, supporting the most recent computer models.

Shocking really !

Beautiful most definitely.

I'd like to link you to a thread that was only seen by a handful of members.
I posted it a while ago and it contains the artist impression of what is left after a super novae explosion. Also in 3-D.

Edit : To say it is not the same video.
