Abstract I present my minority view that the majority (or even all) of core collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are driven by jets rather than by neutrinos, and that the majority of type Ia supernovae (SN Ia) reach their explosion via the core degenerate scenario. New simulations presented at the meeting did not achieve an explosion of CCSNe. I critically examine other arguments that where presented in support of the neutrino-driven model, and present counter arguments that support the jet-driven… 
The two promising scenarios to explode core collapse supernovae
I compare to each other what I consider to be the two most promising scenarios to explode core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). Both are based on the negative jet feedback mechanism (JFM). In the
The imprints of the last jets in core collapse supernovae
We analyze the morphologies of three core collapse supernova remnants (CCSNRs) and the energy of jets in other CCSNRs and in Super Luminous Supernovae (SLSNe) of type Ib/Ic/IIb, and conclude that
Spatial distribution of radionuclides in 3D models of SN 1987A and Cas A
Abstract Fostered by the possibilities of multi-dimensional computational modeling, in particular the advent of three-dimensional (3D) simulations, our understanding of the neutrino-driven explosion
Do FRB Mark Dark Core Collapse
Are some neutron stars produced without a supernova, without ejecting mass in a remnant? Theoretical calculations of core collapse in massive stars often predict this. The observation of the

Applying the jet feedback mechanism to core-collapse supernova explosions
I examine a mechanism by which two fast narrow jets launched by a newly formed neutron star (NS), or a black hole (BH), at the centre of a core-collapse supernova (CCSN), form two slow massive wide
The progenitors of core-collapse supernovae suggest thermonuclear origin for the explosions
Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are the explosions of massive stars following the collapse of the stars' iron cores. Poznanski (2013) has recently suggested an observational correlation between the
Core collapse supernova remnants with ears
We study the morphologies of core collapse supernova remnants (CCSNRs) and find that about third of CCSNRs in our sample have two opposite `ears' protruding from their main shell. We assume that the
What planetary nebulae can tell us about jets in core collapse supernovae
We compare the morphology of the core collapse supernova remnant (CCSNR) W49B with the morphology of many planetary nebulae (PNe), and deduce the orientation of the jets that shaped this CCSNR and
The fraction of type Ia supernovae exploding inside planetary nebulae (SNIPs)
Using three independent directions we estimate that the fraction of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) exploding inside planetary nebulae (PNe), termed SNIPs,is at least ~20%. Our three directions are as
Explaining the most energetic supernovae with an inefficient jet-feedback mechanism
We suggest that the energetic radiation from core-collapse super-energetic supernovae (SESNe) is due to a long lasting accretion process onto the newly born neutron star (NS), resulting from an
The Galactic Supernova Remnant W49B Likely Originates from a Jet-driven, Core-collapse Explosion
We present results from a 220 ks observation of the Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) W49B using the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer on board the Chanrda X-ray Observatory. We exploit these data to
The magnetar model of the superluminous supernova GAIA16apd and the explosion jet feedback mechanism (JFM)
Under the assumption that jets explode core collapse supernovae in a negative jet feedback mechanism (JFM), I show that rapidly rotating neutron stars are likely to be formed when the explosion is
EXPLAINING THE SUPERNOVA IMPOSTOR SN 2009ip AS MERGERBURST
We propose that the energetic major outburst of the supernova (SN) impostor SN 2009ip in 2012 September (outburst 2012b) was a mergerburst event, where two massive stars merged. The previous
