Further, the space agency wrote, "This newly identified neutron star is a rare variety that has both a low magnetic field and no stellar companion". For the first time, astronomers have discovered a particular kind of neutron star that is located outside the Milky Way galaxy.
E0102 was an oxygen-reach supernova but the residues left behind by the massive explosion of this supernova are of a great importance for the scientists who can comprehend in more details how massive supernovae, prior to exploding, are able to blast lightweight compounds into more massive ones.
NASA astronomers have discovered a neutron star located about 200,000 light years from Earth.
In accordance with the observations made with the NASA's Chandra X-Ray telescope, the neutron star is encircled by a circle-shaped blast wave, followed by a wave of gases that is traveling slower.

Michigan’s John Beilein not front-runner for Pistons job, per report
MI won a team-record 33 games in 2017-18 and reached the national championship game before falling to Villanova. His next victory will be his 800 as a college coach.
In this case, it's believed the explosion happened some two-thousand years ago.
Neutron stars are the ultra-dense cores of massive stars that give way and undergo a supernova explosion. This remains is observed today racing through space after being expelled at millions of miles per hour.
"Chandra observations of E0102 show that the supernova remnant is dominated by a large ring-shaped structure in X-rays, associated with the blast wave of the supernova". A neutron star is a celestial object that has a small radius, and the matter is "Packed" it with a high density. At the center of this ring is a blue point-like source of X-rays. These neutron stars were initially discovered by the British astrophysicist named Jocelyn Bell near about fifty years ago. According to NASA, this neutron star is characterized by a low magnetic field and has no stellar companion. About ten such objects have been detected in our galaxy, but this is the first a unique neutron star is discovered outside Milky Way.
