Determining which stars give rise to supernovae (SNe) is key to SN research and stellar evolution studies. Without knowledge of SN progenitors, many of the conclusions and inferences made about the connection between SNe and important problems in astrophysics stand on precarious ground. The main obstacle is that a SN leaves few traces of the star that exploded.
