Observational Null

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows recent supernova SN 2014J in Messier 82 (a dwarf galaxy near the constellation of Ursa Major). The orbiting Chandra X-Ray Observatory looked for expected x-ray emissions from the supernova (as predicted by current theories). No x-rays! Time for a new theory?
