Yes, in a binary system of a white dwarf (extinct star's dead core that did not nova) and it's neighbor that is captured in a gravitational bond, material from the active neighbor accretes on the surface of the white dwarf until so much is there the gravitational force causes an explosion. Surprisingly, the companion usually survives the cataclysm and continues to feed the white dwarf.

I imagined what this would sound like to me, if the person saying those words was Ron Jeremy. :laugh2:

--R :p
