decided to go out on a limb and make #SupernovaeSaturday a thing so I have an excuse to talk about supernovae all day 🙈. BUCKLE UP, GUYS.
so, we know supernovae are big and bright exploding stars. but what MAKES a star explode? do all stars explode? do all supernovae come from the same types of stars? what happens after they explode? well, lemme tELL ya: it’s..complicated.
some supernovae (SN) come from massive stars. HUGE. like, between 8x the mass of our Sun and >100x the mass of our Sun!!! can you imagine something that big?? (spoiler: I study them and I can’t. not really.)
