Understanding the explosive nature of stellar supernovae and the subsequent production of elements is one of the more challenging problems undertaken by SciDAC. The set of astrophysics efforts supported by SciDAC and VACET range from modeling supernova explosions to cosmology and early universe formation. The computational astrophysics projects produce very large, multi-field, time-varying data at DOE's open computing facilities. SciDAC2 will begin to include efforts that aim to compare the results of simulations with supernova spectrum and cosmic microwave background radiation observations.
