Is an explosion a destructive phenomenon, or does it actually leave behind what fuels new beginnings?

At the last stages of it's life, a star runs out of nuclear fuel and some of its mass flows into its core. Eventually, the core is so heavy that it cannot withstand its own gravitational force. The core collapses, which results in the giant explosion of a supernova.

The supernova does not last for a long time, but leaves behind the most beautiful aftermath ever witnessed. Also, after a supernova the remains of the star are scattered, distributing it's elements throughout the universe.

This begs the question: Are explosions actually deadly, or do they open up a world of possibilities?
We will leave that up to our speakers, as they show you what a phenomenon like the supernova means to them, and how, when or where they might have witnessed one.

This year we are bringing the supernova to our stage, and you are leaving the event with the impact...the change...the aftermath...
