Caption: Type II supernova. Animation of a large star exploding as a type II supernova. This is the result of a massive star exhausting the hydrogen and helium that fuel its nuclear fires. As the star's core collapses, a rebounding shock wave blows off the outer layers of the star at thousands of kilometres per second. A supernova may briefly outshine an entire galaxy.
