This is how it looks inside an exploding star
Using the IBM Blue Gene/P supercomputer, physicists at the Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago has simulated the extreme physics that goes on inside a supernova. The resulting images are quite beautiful, here’s one:
This image is a snapshot of a moment shortly after detonation of a type Ia supernova. The energy of the blast is equivalent to 1, 027 hydrogen bombs of 100 megaton each.
