Failure to Detonate

Caption: A collaboration led by George Jordan at the University of Chicago's Flash Center for Computational Science has conclusively demonstrated a connection between white dwarf stars that fail to completely detonate and a class of oddly dim supernovae. This image, based on supercomputer simulations, shows the asymmetric surface characteristics of a white dwarf that fails to detonate.
