Quote: "Source of many wonders, stars also have finite lifetimes, which can end with a shredding breath before falling into obscurity – as our sun shall one day – or with magnificent explosions (supernovae) that can outshine a whole galaxy for a day. Many mysteries remain yet to be unveiled and we will explore some of them in this talk. There are at least two mechanisms that can lead to a supernova and one of them was paramount to probe the accelerated expansion of the universe in the late 90’s, research that was awarded the Physics Nobel Prize of 2011 and supports the existence of the so called ‘dark energy’. The introduction of this talk will consist of historical observations of supernovae and the evolution of stars until they meet their fate. Subsequently, I will show some images and artistic renditions of exploding stars, ending the talk with a discussion of well-established theories and subjects of active research."
