Learn about the gigantic explosions in the universe that are produced by dying stars and cause new star formations. Find out how scientists are trying to predict supernova and how they group supernova. These sites include images, schematic drawings, audio, movies, and animated simulations.
This student-created website can teach students about the stages that a star goes through to become a supernova. NOTE: This website requires that Macromedia Flash Player be installed on the computer in order to view the animation.
After you read about different types of stars, scroll down the page and learn which of them can produce a supernova. NOTE: The "Talk" link at the top and the "Space Chat" link at the left both lead to message boards.
