Supernova

The researchers of Indira Gandhi National Center for Arts have found 5000 years old rock from Kashmir. They have found the rock with artwork on the wall of an ancient house. The artwork on the rock shows that the artist has depicted a hunting scene under two bright objects in the sky. The analysis of this rock shows that these are neither the Sun and the Moon nor are two Suns. This is because the Sun and the Moon cannot come close to each other. And, the full Moon only appears in the sky in opposite direction of the Sun. Thus, the researchers have concluded that this 5000 years old artwork is the depiction of the supernova.

The leading researcher and astrophysicist Mayank Vahia has analyzed the rock. He has reached the conclusion that this artwork depicts the supernova. He has a solid point to start the research. First, they have found the rock in the oldest house in Kashmir. The history of this house dates back to 2100BC. And, the oldest known settlement of the region dates back to 4100BC. This explosion incident of the star may have taken place between these periods. Vahia also explains Supernova in detail. He says that it could emit high energy and bright light for hundreds and thousands of years.

The detailed history of such Supernova shows that it may be the HB9 Supernova that had exploded in 3600BC. A closer look at the artwork reveals that it is not the depiction of a hunting scene. Instead, the artist has depicted the scene in such a way as seems natural and fitted constellations. The only one problem with the true history of this artwork is that the researchers have not found any other artwork. Thus, Vahia needs to find another such rock to support his research.
