We are star guts. The elements that we are made of were forged in massive stars billions of years ago, then spread throughout the young Milky Way galaxy by the explosive deaths of those same stars, known as supernovae. While supernovae are observed routinely to occur in galaxies near and far, the physical mechanism that drives these energetic explosions remains unclear.  Couch’s group at MSU is raising the bar in the study of the supernova mechanism with cutting-edge computational science.
