@article{Burrows2019TheOF, title={The overarching framework of core-collapse supernova explosions as revealed by 3D fornax simulations}, author={Adam Burrows and Davide Radice and David Vartanyan and Hiroki Nagakura and Michael A. Skinner and Joshua Dolence}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2019} }

We have conducted 19 state-of-the-art 3D core-collapse supernova simulations spanning a broad range of progenitor masses. This is the largest collection of sophisticated 3D supernova simulations ever performed. We have found that while the majority of these models explode, not all do, and that even models in the middle of the available progenitor mass range may be less explodable. This does not mean that those models for which we did not witness explosion would not explode in Nature, but that…
