I do love a good space explosion.

Supernovae were one of my first astronomical loves. Stars explode! Like, completely. And they blast off as much energy as billions of normal stars, sometimes shining as brightly as their host galaxy.

Then I learned about other types of catastrophic cosmic events. Solar flares. Gamma-ray bursts. Magnetars. Planet collisions. Galaxy collisions.
