Why do stars explode and how is the energy generated? What is the effect of all those little "aftermath" particles floating through space? Nova: Death of a Star is a 60-minute science documentary that explores rare astronomical events in all their dimensions. The film features the 1987 explosion of a supernova -- first observed by a Canadian astronomer in Chile -- and discusses its impact on the universe. Witness the celestial phenomena that baffles the scientific community as you travel from South America to Japan to Cleveland. A discussion of supernova neutrinos is a special highlight of the tape. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
