All I really know about the kernel is that is sort of the "core" of the system. What exactly is the kernel? And what happens during a kernel panic? Thanks!

It is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level and manages system resources.
I believe that the hardware does not want to do its thing that the software asks it wants to do or just refuses to do.
