Supernovae are large-scale explosions that occur when giant stars of great mass come to the end of their lifetime.
Research on supernovae is considered to provide clues as to how the universe came into being or evolved, which is why researchers continue to explore this phenomenon.
We report on two recently published research undertakings on supernovas.
