Presented 'Rage Against the Dying of the Light: Old Supernovae Teach Us New Tricks.'
Type Ia supernovae have become famous as distance measures to faraway galaxies and cosmology probes. However, we still do not know exactly what types of star systems explode as these supernovae or how the explosions take place. In this talk, I showed how Hubble Space Telescope observations of Type Ia supernovae years after their explosion shed new light on the physics of their explosions.
