The Rise and Fall of Core-Collapse Supernovae

July 2, 2015 Tags: Edison, NERSC

Few events in the cosmos are as powerful as the explosion of a massive star in a supernova. For several weeks, the brightness of that single event can rival that of an entire galaxy. As a result, supernovae of various types are often used as "standard candles" in determining the size and expansion rate of a universe powered by dark energy. Despite decades of research, however, understanding the explosion mechanisms of supernovae remains among the great challenges of astrophysics—in… Read More »
