A new view into the final, turbulent death throes of a supernova has given an insight into how their final explosions outshine entire galaxies.

Turbulent mixing inside stars causes them to expand, contract, eject and explode, according to a 3-D model. It is the first of its kind to represent the start of a supernova collapse in three dimensions, according to its developer W. David Arnett, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Ari...
