An X-Ray of the Crab Nebula

We here on Earth have watched this star explosion in real time since 1054 A.D., but only now can we see inside it and the neutron star at the core of the supernova and the jets and rings around it. I've seen many visible light composits of the Crab Nebula all my life but to see the center in X-Ray is amazing.
