Frontiers Lecture: Supernovae

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description of Activity

Supernovae, the explosions of stars, are some of the most energetic phenomena in the universe, rivalling the combined light of billions of stars.

These explosive events have been a subject of study for centuries and have a massive impact on our past, present, and future on Earth.

Or Graur, associate professor of astrophysics at the University of Portsmouth's Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, and Museum Senior Scientist Jackie Faherty took a deep dive into supernovae. How have observations of supernovae contributed to the transformation of astronomy from astrology to astrophysics? What are the modern tools and techniques used in the study of supernovae? Graur shared how his own observations with the Hubble Space Telescope have impacted the dynamic field of supernova research.
