Speakers: Dr Marialuisa Aliotta

Where do chemical elements come from? How, when and where are they created in the Universe? Why do some stars explode while others die away almost unnoticed?

These and similar questions are at the core of Nuclear Astrophysics research. The enormous progress in this field over the last fifty years has revealed that nuclear physics takes centre stage to explain the inner workings of stars and the synthesis of the elements. This talk will take us on a fascinating journey through stellar births, lives, and deaths, the creation of the elements, and the intimate connection we bear with past stellar explosions.
