Astronomy Open Night: Core Collapse Supernovae
Start Date: 2/6/2015Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 2/6/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Doug Swesty, Research Associate Professor and Astronomy IT Manager, Physics & Astronomy Department

Topic: "What We Know (and don't know) About Core Collapse Supernovae"

The final stages of the life of a massive star occur in a violent explosion that astrophysicists refer to as a core-collapse supernovae. Unfortunately, there is still much we don't know about these explosions. For over half a century, scientists have been attempting to use models to understand what causes the explosion. And it's been over a quarter of a century since we've been fortunate enough to get a glimpse of what goes on in the interior of a core-collapse supernovae.
