Movies of turbulent thermonuclear explosions of type Ia supernovae (with the Prometheus simulation code)

These simulation movies were made during Federrath's undergraduate studies and show different initial conditions for the thermonuclear burning front inside the exploding star. Note that these movies are in the co-moving frame of the burning front.
