Abstract: We propose a model for supernovae Ia explosions based on a phase transitionto a supersymmetric state which becomes the active trigger for the deflagrationstarting the explosion in an isolated sub-Chandrasekhar white dwarf star. Withtwo free parameters we fit the rate and several properties of type Iasupernovae and address the gap in the supermassive black hole massdistribution. One parameter is a critical density fit to about $3 \cdot 10^7$g-cc while the other has the units of a space time volume and is found to be oforder $0.05\,$ Gyr $R E^3$ where $R E$ is the earth radius. The model involvesa phase transition to an exact supersymmetry in a small core of a dense star.
