3D printing a nova: scientists recreate binary star system explosion in 3D

A group of scientists have used 3D modeling and 3D printing to physically recreate (on a tiny scale) the explosion pattern of a star located 25,000 light-years from Earth. Looking up at the night sky, if we are lucky enough to even see the stars through city haze and clouds, it is hard not to think of what the stars are up to, how old they are, and how it is even possible that so many gaseous balls of fire exist out in space.
