Star Shock

Scientists have announced the discovery of a supernova remnant being illuminated by a (pinky to mouth)mach 1000(/ptm) shock wave. Not explained: Whether or not the speed of sound in a plasma or whatever the hell that is in that cloud is the same as here on Earth. Because you know the report wouldn't just pull a ridiculous measurement to make a fancy headline. Never happens.
