Abstract: The pursuit of the core collapse supernova explosion mechanism continues. While such efforts have been undertaken over the last four decades, it is only in the last decade that multidimensional models have been developed, and only in the last few years that significant components of supernova models, such as the neutrino transport, have been modeled with sufficient realism. We can now identify what are arguably the important components that must be included in any realistic three-dimensional supernova model. The challenge we now face is to include all of these in the models.
