  Novae and Supernovae: Astronomy: Novae and Supernovae
Posted on Saturday, December 04 @ 16:46:16 CST by astronomy
  Novae and Supernovae


Novae and supernovae are produced by different processes with dramatically different finales: the violent eruption of a nova may recur, while a supernova signals complete stellar destruction.

The search for novae and supernovae is a fascinating and worth-while amateur pursuit. These extraordinary exploding stars are of great interest to astronomers studying stellar evolution, nucleosynthesis (the creation of elements via nuclear reactions in stars), and cosmology.
