Computer simulation of a burning front moving upward through a channel distorted by strong turbulence. This burning front is similar to that which incinerates a star in about a second during a thermonuclear supernova. The red surface is the forward side of the front and the blue is the back. Simulation by UA faculty member Dean Townsley.
