Caption: Supernova explosion, computer artwork. Supernovas are the explosive deaths of massive stars. A supernova will occur when a star runs out of fuel at the end of its life. Without the nuclear reactions that powered it, it can no longer support itself against gravity, and it collapses. When it reaches a critical density, the outer layers rebound off the super-dense core in an enormous explosion, leaving the core exposed as a neutron star.
