How did the supernova come about?

Well in space there are billions of stars. Stars are like humans they are born, they live for a while and eventually die out. When a star reaches the end of its life it starts to produce elements in its core such as helium and other elements but when it produces IRON it has signed its death certificate, after just a few seconds after the star has produced iron it has a supernova. A supernova is the single most destructive force known to man. A supernova will destroy anything in its path. When the supernova is over all that is left is a white dwarf which is so dense that if you was to drop a sugar cube on its surface it would sink into its core thousands of miles deep.
