Frontiers Lecture: Supernova Forensics


Frontiers Lecture: Supernova Forensics

What happens when a star explodes? How do we study a phenomenon that happens huge distances away in space and far back in time? In this podcast, Alicia Soderberg, an astronomer at Harvard University, reviews new results from Harvard’s Supernova Forensics team that increase what we know about supernovas, using new techniques that mine Earth for data, as well as studying the stars themselves.

This lecture took place at the Hayden Planetarium on March 9, 2015.
