Core-collapse supernovae are among the most powerful explosions in universe, releasing about 1e53 erg of energy on timescales of a few tens of seconds. These explosion events are also responsible for the production and dissemination of most of the heavy elements, making life as we know it possible. Yet exactly how they work is still unresolved. One reason for this issue is the sheer complexity and cost of a self-consistent, multi-physics, and multi-dimensional numerical simulations for core-collapse supernova simulation, which is impractical, and often impossible, even on our largest supercomputers we have available. To advance our understanding we instead must often use simplified models, teasing out the most important ingredients for successful explosions, while helping us to interpret results from higher fidelity multi-physics models. In this paper we investigate the role of instabilities in supernova environment. We present here simulation and visualization results produced by our code GenASiS.
