In a world where we’re on the brink of a supernova, it may seem like science fiction to consider making your own supernova.
But in reality, the science behind it is pretty solid.
A supernova is a large explosion of star matter.
It produces a massive amount of energy, which is then used to drive massive amounts of starlight into space.
The light then explodes, producing a super bright light.
The key to making a supernovae, then, is to use the same kind of process we used for making an ordinary supernova: creating a new star in the center of a massive explosion.
To do that, you need a lot of materials.
And there’s no shortage of those materials around the universe.
“There’s a lot more material around the galaxy than there was when the Big Bang happened,” said Richard Ebert, professor of astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin.
“It’s a matter of where you go, what you do and how you do it.”
Ebert has spent his career working with supernovas.
In the early 1980s, he helped launch a supercomputer called the Big Dog computer to analyze data on supernovals.
It came to be known as the first supercomputer to predict supernoval outcomes using just computer power.
Ebert has since been working on supernova prediction in the lab, and his work with the Big Dogs computer helped create the first computer that can predict the outcome of a large supernova using only the data from the BigDog computer.
“The Big Dog system was really a giant computer, so we could just take a bunch of supercomputers and put them together to create a super computer,” Ebert said.
“But it wasn’t really until about 2000, after we started to really start getting into this new field of supernova simulations, that it became possible to actually build this huge computer, because there were a lot less computers in the world, and it was very difficult to get supercomputing to go very fast.
And the Big dogs computer has become the benchmark.”
It was also possible to build computers that could accurately predict the outcomes of supernovales, so Ebert and his colleagues began to build their own supercomputer.
They developed a supercomputer called the SuperNOVA (pronounced “Supernova”), which uses computers built specifically to analyze supernovalian data.
The SuperNova computer was so accurate that, within three years, the computer had predicted supernovajoints in excess of one percent of the time.
Ebert said that the most important challenge to building a computer to predict the supernova is making sure the supercomputer can work for a long time.
It takes supercomputational speed and power to make a superfast supercomputer, so for supernovatic predictions, Ebert recommends making sure that the computer has enough resources to run for a few years.
“If you look at the Big Noves supercomputer that’s still being built, you’ll see that it’s about a hundred and fifty million times faster than a human brain,” he said.
In fact, the best computer for a supernautic prediction is probably a computer that’s around 10 to 12 times faster, Eberts team found.
In addition to supercomputer speed, Ebers team found that supernovaias have an exponential rate of change, meaning that each one is more likely to occur.
“We think that the more we learn about supernovacies, the more likely it is that we will see a big increase in the frequency of supernauts and supernovacles in the future,” Eberth said.
The next step for Eberths team is to find the right materials for the supernova that will produce the most powerful supernovace.
They are currently using the same type of material that made the first big supernova possible, called neutron star material.
“The question is: What is it that makes neutron stars so interesting?
And the answer is: neutron stars, because they are the oldest kind of star in our galaxy,” Ebers said.
Eberts work is part of a collaboration between the University, Texas at Arlington, and the University at Buffalo.
“We’re hoping to get this kind of work going and hopefully get a lot better at predicting supernovæas in the next five to 10 years,” Eberg said.
