Caption: A multi-wavelength image taken with telescopes on the Earth and in space of a neutron star within our neighbouring Small Magellanic Cloud galaxy. A neutron star (seen here as the blue spot surrounded by a red ring) is the final product of gravitational collapse, compression and explosion of a massive star, left embedded in its supernova remnant (in green).

Caption: Un'immagine a lunghezza d'onda multipla, scattata con telescopi da Terra e spaziali, di una stella di neutroni che si trova nella Piccola Nube di Magellano, una galassia molto vicina alla nostra. Una stella di neutroni (qui rappresentata come un punto blu circondato da un anello rosso) è il prodotto finale del collasso gravitazionale, dell'esplosione di una stella massiccia, incorporata nel proprio resto di supernova (in verde).

Caption: صورة متعددة الأطوال الموجية مأخوذة بالتلسكوبات الأرضية والفضائية لنجم نيوتروني داخل مجرة سحابة ماجلان الصغيرة المجاورة لنا.
النجم النيوتروني (الذي يرى كنقطة زرقاء محاطة بحلقة حمراء) هو الناتج النهائي لانهيار الجاذبيية والانضغاط والإنفجار لنجم ضخم والذى يترك فى النهاية بقايا المستعر الأعظم فيما يعرف بالسوبر نوفا (وترى باللون الأخضر).
