In science:

This difference in progenitor lifetime means that a study of SN rates offers insight into both the star formation history of the Universe and the nature of SNe Ia progenitors.
Rates and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae
The rate for SNe Ia at z ∼ 0.1 is only known to within a factor of 2 (Cappellaro et al. 1999a). A determination of the local SN Ia rate to the same precision as the high-redshift SN Ia rate would allow for a study of star formation rates and offer further clues to the nature of SN Ia progenitors.
Rates and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae
This delay can offer further hints toward the nature of the progenitor systems of SNe Ia.
