Super Nova Remnants

When astronomers look into the heavens, they can see the remains of stars that have exploded. The technical term for this is SuperNova Remnants (SNR). These SNRs should be visible as they expand for thousands or even millions of years. The SNRs are categorized into three types: Stage 1 – Seven light years in diameter, Stage 2 – 300 light years in diameter, and Stage 3 – 1500 light years in diameter. Looking at the SNRs in the Milky Way and counting the different stages of SNRs should give a pretty good indication of the number of years that have passed. From the chart below, you can see that the predictions of a young universe align more closely with the experimental data than does the long-age prediction:
