Our bodies are mostly made up of six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen,
calcium and phosphorus. All are necessary to life. Key questions for nuclear astrophysics are how, when and where in the universe are these elements created? The answers take us on a journey through the inner workings of stars, and show our intimate connection with past fierce stellar explosions. This talk will reveal how nuclear physics takes centre stage in the quest to understand our origin and place in the universe.
