Alison Laird (University of York) Title: Making a Star in a Lab Abstract: We are all ‘stardust’ - almost all the elements that make up the world around us, the oxygen we breathe, the iron in our blood, were 'cooked' in the hearts of stars before the Solar System formed
This talk will show how the tiny atomic nucleus has a huge influence on stars and galaxies, and how nuclear reactions drive the creation of the chemical elements
We will also demonstrate the role of supernovae and novae, and explain how we can study these exploding stars in a laboratory
