While powerful radio sources were quite common at high redshift, local galaxies with huge 36 V. Gaibler et al. supermassive black holes generally only show weak radio emission, Cygnus A being an exception to this. But not only jet activity was a powerful source of energy in the early universe. At that time, formation of galaxies was still under way and the birth and death of lots of massive stars probably lead to the formation of galactic winds. High supernova rates powered the formation of global outflows, creating shocks and sweeping up matter into a dense shell [2].

G. progenitor models, EoS, and rotation). Preliminary results reveal interesting differences that depend on these variations and may be bearing on the supernova exlposion mechanism. This calls for systematic parameter studies which continue to much later post-bounce times, which in turn requires the use of a code with Teraflop capability. Such a code is developed right now by the Garching supernova group for the SX-8 of the HLRS and promises interesting results in the future.
