Imaging shock fronts from a supernova remnant
The Integral Field Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Experiment (INFUSE) aims to spectroscopically image a region of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant, studying shock fronts as material from the supernova interacts with the interstellar medium. INFUSE will be the first far ultraviolet integral field spectrograph (IFS) in space and will have access to the Lyman ultraviolet.
