Supernova Questions

  • Thread starter AstroDog
  • Start date
Hi Everyone!

I am a 5th grader and really interested in Astronomy. I decided to do a research project on Supernovae for my Quest class this year. Part of the project is to talk with others who are just as interested in Supernova explosions as I am and find out what you think. Here are my questions:

1) How did you get interested in Supervova?

2) How long have you been interested in them?

3) What is the most interesting, surprising or unusual thing that you have learned about Supernova?

4) Besides the Sun, which stars do you think are close enough to destroy the Earth if they go Supervova?

5) How do you think we could harness the energy release of a Supernova?

I really look forward to hearing your opinions and thanks for the help!
