Abstract: We prove a theorem which implies that if $ \gamma \omega $ is a supercompact compactification of the countable discrete space $ \omega $ then $ \gamma \omega - \omega $ is separable. This improves an earlier result of the author's that such a $ \gamma \omega $ must have $ \gamma \omega - \omega \;{\text{ccc}}$. We prove a theorem which implies that the hyperspace of closed subsets of $ {2^{\omega_2}}$ is not a continuous image of a supercompact space. This improves an earlier result of $ {\text{L}}$. Šapiro that the hyperspace of closed subsets of $ {2^{\omega_2}}$ is not dyadic.
