  1. See, this is the root cause of one of my pet peeves.

    Yes, supernovas leave donut-shaped images. This is because (as I’m sure our gentle host is well aware) the supernova blasts out a thin spherical shell of debris, the image appears as a ring because we’re looking at the edge of the sphere, the debris is comparatively thick from our viewpoint.

    This has morphed into the Death Star giving off a donut shaped ring when it explodes. Yes, it bugs me.
