About This Quiz

Did you know that nearly 1,000 years ago Chinese astronomers witnessed a supernova that was so bright it could be seen with the naked eye and was bright enough to read by at night? This thing was 6,500 light years away in the Crab Nebula! That's the power of a supernova. Meanwhile, the rest of our universe is riddled with black holes. Some of them are bigger than our entire solar system, while others could very well be the size of your dog. When it comes to stellar phenomena, the only things you can be sure of is that our little corner of the universe is pretty small, and incredible things are happening out there.

It's kind of ironic that a supernova has the power to become a black hole when they seem so different from one another. A supernova is so bright and energetic, flooding the universe with light. A black hole literally pulls light into itself and can't even be seen with the naked eye. They're like opposite sides of the same coin but they still start off the same way, just like us. We all start very much the same and find different paths in life. So which are you, a supernova or a black hole? Let's find out!
