Physics Informal Seminar Series: Professor Aimee Miller-Ott

Date:
Friday, October 18th
Time:
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Physics Colloquium Series: Professor Rebecca Surman

Date:
Tuesday, October 22nd
Time:
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

While the origins of the light (hydrogen, helium) and intermediate mass (carbon through iron) elements found in our solar system are well understood, we still don't know where roughly half of the elements heavier than iron were made. Here we will discuss two attractive potential sites – core-collapse supernovae and neutron star mergers – and describe how progress in open issues in neutrino and nuclear physics may be the key to unlocking this longstanding mystery.
