National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory Seminar  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The speaker of this seminar will be Ed Brown from MSU. It will be about carbon burning in astrophysics. Carbon burning powers the final millennia of a massive star's life. Type Ia supernovae, the thermonuclear explosions of white dwarf stars and cosmology's standard candles, are ignited by thermally unstable carbon burning. In the deep ocean of accreting neutron stars, unstable carbon burning powers rare, energetic superbursts that take the neutron star's core temperature. This introductory seminar will present these three phenomena and their dependence on the carbon burning cross section at low energies.
