A Nebula is a cloud of interstellar dust, hydrogen gas, helium gas and plasma, whereas a supernova is the explosion of a massive star.

The diffreence between a solar nebula and a Nebula is its size and if it is Intersteller or not a solor nebula is usually larger and forms a Solar System where a regular nebula is smaller and is mostly the result of a collapsed star or a Supernova.

It does not exist.There are:Solar NebulaPlanetary NebulaH NebulaSupernova Nebula (Supernova Remnant)Or just plain nebula.

some nebulae are formed from massive supernova explosion.

A nebula contains stars and other matter; a supernova is just a large enough nova, or star that explodes at the end of its life cycle due to spent fuel

Some nebulae are formed from massive supernova explosion. The material thrown off from this is ionized by the supernova remnant. One example is the Crab Nebula, in Taurus. It is the result of a recorded supernova, SN 1054, in the year 1054 and at the centre of the nebula is a neutron star, created during the explosion.

A nebula does not explode. A nebula is generally the remains of a supernova explosion.

The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula.

Not much other than that they both emit light in large quantities.A nebula is a grouping of billions of stars, while a supernova is a single star exploding at a stage in its development.Comments: That meaning of "nebula" as a galaxy (or a star cluster within a galaxy) is a bit out of date now. Nowadays a nebula usually means a cloud of gas and dust. It doesn't usually emit much light.Actually there is a connection between a supernova and a nebula.Some of the stuff found in nebulae comes from supernova explosions.

The Crab Nebula is an example of a supernova remnant.

Crab Nebula:Pulsar wind nebulaSupernova remnantRadius of 5.5 ly6,500 light years awayOrion Nebula:Diffuse nebulaStellar nurseryRadius of 12 ly1,244 light years awayEdit: M1, the Crab Nebula, is related to the death of a star. The Orion Nebula, M42, is relateted to the birth of stars.

a nebula is one nebula. nebulae are 2 or more nebulas.

Both are the same except the solar nebula is the nebula that formed our solar system.

A solar nebula is related to the formation of our Solar System, any other nebula is just a nebula.

Nebula. Some nebulae are formed as the result of supernova explosions. The material thrown off from the supernova explosion is ionized by the supernova remnant. One of the best examples of this is the Crab Nebula, in Taurus. It is the result of a recorded supernova, SN 1054, in the year 1054 and at the centre of the nebula is a neutron star, created during the explosion.

Yes. The Crab Nebula neutron star. A neutron star found in the middle of the Crab Nebula - a Nebula formed from the 1054 supernova event.

Prepositional phrases that begin with after are adverb phrases: e.g. "The nebula formed after a supernova" meaning the nebula formed afterward.

It's not the same as a supernova--the Crab Nebula is the visible remnant of a supernova event which occurred about 7,500 years ago. The light from the supernova explosion reached the earth and was observed by Chinese and Arab astronomers about 1,000 years ago. The Crab Nebula was the first object to be identified with a supernova which was actually observed during recorded history.

The crab nebula was formed by a supernova that was first seen in 1054.

Emission nebula glow and reflection nebula reflect the light form other stars

The Orion nebula was likely caused by a supernova. It is a huge cloud of gas within which hundreds of new stars are being formed.

The discovery of the crab nebula, a supernova remnant, seems to correspond to a bright supernova recorded by Chinese astronomers in 1054. The nebula was later described by John Bevis in 1731.

The crab nebula is the debris formed in the supernova explosion.

2012 is an origanal movie but 2012 supernova is fake
