    White dwarfs are the very dense leftover cores of stars like our sun. Think of an object with the mass of the sun, but in a volume the size of the earth. Because of gravity, white dwarfs have a very specific limit on their size. If they become larger than 1.44 times the mass of the sun, then they explode in what astronomers call a Type Ia supernova.
