The moment of epiphany when one finally comprehends a complex scientific, mathematical, or philosophical concept.

The term is a combination of the words "Sagan", the last name of the consummate philosopher-scientist Carl Sagan and "supernova", a stellar explosion so luminous that it can briefly outshine an entire galaxy.

A Saganova is not to be confused with a Sagasm, although the implications of the knowledge gained by the former may lead to the latter.
I just don't understand what you mean when you say going through a wormhole would be like folding through space -- whoa, whoa, whoa, Saganova. Got it.
