Join astrophysicist Jackie Faherty for an exploration of things that go bang in the universe. Space may be generally empty, but where there ismatter things can get violently explosive, from supernovae explosions to the powerful event that led to the start of everything. Faherty will (safely) guide you around our explosive universe using the 3D Digital Universe Atlas, the most comprehensive of its kind.
