Super Novas

How does a Supernova happen

A binary star is 2 stars that orbit at the same point. Its a change in the center or core of a star. A carbon- oxygen White dwarf takes matter from a companion star. Over time, the white dwarf consumes so much matter the star with blow up. How it happens is at the end of the stars life, it runs out of nuclear fuel. From there, whats left goes into the core, and when the core gets to heavy, the star explodes.Are sun is a star, but it doesn't have enough mass to become a supernova.
