When a sun explodes, how does it affect its gravitation?

When a sun explodes or implodes will its gravitation get stronger, get weaker or what else will happen

  1. Hi Liam,

    Gravity is linked to matter. If a star explodes, the outer layers of it will fly into space, and the rest will collapse to a very dense ball called a neutron star, or, when a really big star explodes, into a black hole. Although some matter is “lost” due to nuclear reactions inside the exploding star, most of it will still be there, so from a reasonable distance, nothing much will seem to change when it comes to gravity.

    Hope that helps.
