Massive stars lead very short lives which come to a dramatic end in a huge explosion - amongst the most energetic, and beautiful events in the Universe. Although these "Supernovae" are rare, they have shaped the Universe we live in and can help us to understand star formation in different types of galaxies. Can we learn anything about the way galaxies form and evolve, and can the galaxies help us to understand the lives of stars?
