Supernova Data: why (this name)?
A Supernova is a stellar explosion more energetic than that of a nova. Supernovae are very bright and cause a radiation emission that can exceed that of an entire galaxy for short periods.
An enormous amount of energy is thrown at high speed, flooding the surrounding space and giving rise to the most beautiful and largest fireworks in the Universe.
In the same way our era is characterized by an enormous production of digital data, with a growth year by year that has no equal in history. The progression is not linear but exponential and the trend does not seem to stop.
The digital universe is daily flooded with data of all kinds from social networks, web and databases of various origins following the same dynamics as when a supernova explodes and floods the universe with energy.
