Supernovas happen about once in 25 years for galaxies like the Milky Way. Remnants should be visible for about a million years. However, we can only observe about 200 remnants nearby, accounting for only roughly 5,000 years. 1 2

- Sarfati, 1999: “A supernova is an explosion of a massive star — the explosion is so bright that it briefly outshines the rest of the galaxy. The supernova remnants (SNRs) should keep expanding for hundreds of thousands of years, according to the physical equations. Yet there are no very old, widely expanding (Stage 3) SNRs, and few moderately old (Stage 2) ones in our galaxy, the Milky Way, or in its satellite galaxies, the Magellanic clouds. This is just what we would expect if these galaxies had not existed long enough for wide expansion.” ↩
