Hubblecast 64: It all ends with a bang!
Most stars in the Universe are small and insignificant, and they will -- eventually -- fizzle out without much drama. But a few light up the sky when they die, and in the process, they don’t just tell us about the lives of stars: they create the building blocks of life, and help us to unravel the whole history of the Universe. These are the stars that end their lives as supernovae, explosions that are among the most violent events in the Universe.
