    Default Super Nova Study



    So, I was browsing good ole MSN and stumbled across a study happening in tronto with a super nova. The article made me think twice about why they were exactly doing it. I'm a little old and research is unlocking new info every day, you can find the article here:
    Physicists replicate a supernova in laboratory - Technology & science - Space - msnbc.com
    but do any of you know of any hypothiseez :-p that are more recent? Not to say that this one is wrong, but figuratively speaking couldn't there be others?

    There is Supernova Simulation which shows what they try to replicate in laboratory

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0jh26fr8Xg]YouTube - The Death of a Star: Type Ia Supernova Simulation[/ame]

    This animation shows a thermonuclear flame burning its way through a white dwarf star. The flame produces hot ash, which buoyantly rises as the flame burns. The ash breaks out of but remains gravitationally bound to the surface of the star and collides at a point on the opposite side of the star from the breakout location. The blue shows the approximate surface of the star and the orange shows the interface between the star and the hot ash produced by the flame.
    Video shows a structure which is visually close to what the team of physicists from the University of Toronto and Rutgers University reproduced in laboratory. Probably equation both supernova and the experiment are close to each other and describe structures which visually have the same shape.

    Clear skies,
