We don’t know how supernovae explode

How do supernovae explode? The simple truth is that we don't know.  While decades of observational and theoretical research have lead to many important breakthroughs in our understanding of these powerful explosions, for all we know, they need not occur. In this talk I will focus on type Ia supernovae and describe our recent ongoing efforts to find an answer to this long standing question.
