Exploding Universe

 

When giant stars explode as "supernovas," they seed the galaxies with heavy elements that make planets and life possible.  Some collisions we're only just now starting to understand.  For example, when Black Holes collide, they can throw off some of the most energetic particles known, ripping and warping space as they go.  But other "explosions" have profound effects as well, such as the beauty and power of supervolcanoes which have contributed to the transformation of our world into the life bearing oasis we now enjoy.  The smallest of explosions, such as the forced impact of high energy particles, can echo the foundational events of the early universe.
