Crab Nebula

This view of the iconic Crab Nebula, as viewed by the Herschel Space Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope, lies within our own Milky Way Galaxy, and shows the remains of the supernova explosion that was first observed by Chinese astronomers in the year 1054. While studying this wispy cloud of gas and dust, a team of astronomers has detected emission lines from argon hydride, a molecular ion containing the noble gas argon. This is the first detection of a noble-gas based compound in space.
