Relativistic rotation processes may cause implosion of a dying star to bounceback as a
supernova explosion

(An answer to a question in Wikipedia's [17] **list of unsolved problems in physics**

What is the exact mechanism by which an implosion of a dying star becomes an explosion?)

AUTHOR: Ben-Amots, N.

ABSTRACT: We discuss exploding stars exceeding 8 M

a) Energy accumulation in sub-Bohr electron orbitals populated by an electron moving at high relativistic velocities [1],

b) Franklin’s relativistic rotation of quarks [2], [3] and

c) Einstein’s gravitational field bounceback [4].

The relativistic sub-Bohr orbitals are derived by using an analogy to exponential gravitation (recent refs [1], [4], [5], [6], [7] and [8]).

SUMMARY: We suggested various processes that alone or together may stop implosion of a star and cause its explosion, (i) First possibility: The [51+(n-1)ª51.5]MeV set of sub-Bohr relativistic electron orbitals around a proton accumulates and then releases energy. The accumulated energy is significant at temperature greater than 6ª10
