Supernova

[server] Supernova is a cancelled server product line at one time under development at Sun Microsystems. The (also cancelled) UltraSPARC Rock processor was intended to slot into this line of servers. Details of the server specifications were released into Open Solaris Architecture Review case FWARC/2008/761. ==Physical resources== The Physi...

supernova

The death explosion of a massive star, resulting in a sharp increase in brightness followed by a gradual fading. At peak light output, supernova explosions can outshine a galaxy. The outer layers of the exploding star are blasted out in a radioactive cloud. This expanding cloud, visible long after the initial explosion fades from view, forms a supe...

Supernova

The outburst of a star on a tremendous scale. There are broadly 2 types of supernova. (1). Where a white dwarf member of a binary system explodes, or matter falls onto the white dwarf and explodes. (2). The collapse and then chaotic explosion of a single massive star.

supernova

supernova 1. The explosion of a star, possibly caused by gravitational collapse, during which the star's luminosity increases by as much as twenty magnitudes and most of the star's mass is blown away at very high velocity, sometimes leaving behind an extremely dense core. 2. A rare celestial phenomenon involving the explosion of most of the materia...

supernova

Explosive death of a star, which temporarily attains a brightness of 100 million Suns or more, so that it can shine as brilliantly as a small galaxy for a few days or weeks. Very approximately, it is thought that a supernova explodes in a large galaxy about once every 100 years. Many supernovae – astronomers estimate some 50% – remain...

Supernova

An explosion which marks the end of a very massive star's life. When it occurs, the exploding star can outshine all of the other stars in the galaxy in total for several days and may leave behind only a crushed core (perhaps a neutron star or black hole). Astronomers estimate that a supernova explosion takes place about once a century in a galaxy l...

Supernova

A supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines an entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the Sun is expected to emit over its entire life span, before fading from view over several weeks or months. The extremely luminous burst of radiation expels much or all of a star`s material at a velocity of up to {val|30000|fmt=commas|u=km/s} ....

A supernova is a cataclysmic explosion caused when a star exhausts its fuel and ends its life. Supernovae are the most powerful forces in the universe. All of the heavy elements were created in supernova explosions.
