Product Description
Season 1 episode 5 "Supernovas" student video worksheet. (From the Science Channel website):
"Stars are not eternal; they are dying in unimaginably large explosions called supernovas. Second only to the Big Bang, these explosions are where creation and destruction meet. Only now have we begun to understand how these wonders in our sky work."
