A supernova occurs when the star is at least 10 times more massive than our sun, and it has gone through its period of Nuclear Fission converting Hydrogen to Helium and Helium to iron, when it finally runs out of fuel, a supernova occurs, and than depending on the mass of the star several things can happen, it either Explodes, or Implodes creating a black hole..
