Transcript of Science Supernovas

What is a supernova
A supernova is a gigantic exploding star “Just before the star goes out, it releases huge amounts of energy, briefly becoming millions of times brighter than it was. Then it immediately shrinks.”- Space Glossary
Where can you find supernovas?
They are usually found in other galaxies, but they are extra hard to see in the milky way because dust blocks our view.
Why should we care about supernovas?
It can tell scientists about the universe. A supernova showed a scientist that the universe is actually expanding more and more. Also it plays a huge role in the universe because when a star explodes, it shoots elements and debris into all around space. Many of the elements we find here on Earth are made in the core of stars. These elements travel on to form new stars, planets and everything else in the universe.
Since a supernova explosion can occur whenever the mass of the star at the time of core collapses. Any massive star may result in a supernova if it loses enough mass before core collapse occurs.
What causes a supernova?
More About Supernovas
For this project we did supernovas. Supernovas are exploded stars. That happens when a stars core runs out of fuel or loses energy
Supernova SN2014J 11.42 million light years away from Earth
De stella nova (“The New Star”) 13,000 light years away
10,000 light years away.
