The second astrophysical object ever detected in neutrinos, after the Sun, was Supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The 24 or so neutrinos detected produced a huge flurry of theoretical papers, but really were too few to do much more than confirm the basic energetics and timescale of core-collapse supernovae. However, if a supernova were to occur in our Galaxy, about five times closer, today’s much larger neutrino detectors would see thousands of neutrinos. What could this signal tell us about supernovae? What could it tell us about neutrinos? And is there anything we can look for while we’‘re waiting?
