some stars blow up.

not all of them. but some of them.


why would something, which had enjoyed millions of years of a non-explody existence just explode?

to get to the heart of the matter we have to get to the core of the thing. We talk about the lifecycles of stars, and nuclear fusion, and quantum mechanics, and fission, and shock wave and neutrinos.
