Resource type: Image
Description: This image represents three visualizations of nuclear combustion in a supernova. The leftmost frame depicts the flame surface itself, while the other frames represent the combustion's velocity and enstrophy, two fluid dynamics that dictate how the combustion flows through the entire system. A supernova is a stellar explosion that is more energetic than a nova. The model is developed at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF).
