Puff the SN 1006!

X+rays from SN 1006 captured by Chandra APOD NASA

A remarkable image of X-rays from the remnants of the famous Supernova of 1006 AD. The explosion must have illuminated the sky even during the day as it took place only 7000 light years from the Sun.

Did the gamma ray radiation from the supernova have - or does it still have - effect on life on Earth?
