Type Ia Supernovae are seen at the far reaches of the Universe due to thermonuclear incineration of white dwarves. Their uniform light curves serve as valuable assets in determining cosmological parameters, however, the underlying mechanisms are far from understood. Exploring the lifetimes and models of SNe Ia provide valuable insight to these mechanisms.
