A supernova is the extremely bright explosion of a star. Supernovae of very large stars are also somewhat synonymous with Stellar-mass black holes. Supernovae shock waves play a significant role in enriching the interstellar medium with heavier atomic mass elements and can trigger the creation of new stars. They are also expected to accelerate large amounts of galactic primary cosmic waves and are potentially strong galactic sources of gravitational waves. These factual reasons and the symbolic ideas one could derive from these facts is what inspired the title and design of this piece.
