Why won't supernova explode?

January 10, 2010 1:03pm CST
It is found that all stars get explode at the time of their death but a massive star is about to die a spectacular death.As its nuclear fuel runs out,it begings to collapse under its own tremendous weight.The crushing pressure inside the star skyrockets,triggering new nuclear reactions,setting the stage for a terrifying blast.And then ...............nothing is going to happen............

Hm, then it is as the star implodes? I believe this is what results in the "black holes" we hear about. Karen

Are you talking about beatlguise or eta carena? Both are fairly close to going super nova in the near future, I say "near future" in astronomical terms, with in the next century or so....both are going to produce a good show that will be visible in our skies though...beatleguise will probably be brighter than the full moon (though still onlly a pinoint of light) when it goes.
