"Volume rendering of the specific entropy distribution in a 3D magnetorotational supernova simulation. Red and yellow regions indicate high entropy ("high disorder", "high temperature", "low density"). The flow structure is fundamentally aspherical. Two large-scale polar lobes have formed that slowly move outward, but are not yet running away in an explosion. This snapshot is from about 180 milliseconds after the proto-neutron star is made." Via.
