Supernova explosions are the most spectacular events in the universe of stars. The major part of the energy releases in a time interval (< 1 s) small relative not only to stellar but also human lifetime, whereas its quantity exceeds by an order of magnitude and more the energy emitted by the star over its total lifetime reaching ~ 1010 yr for Sun-like stars. During the neutron-star formation most of the energy releases are in the form of scarcely observable neutrinos.
