Lecture: Star formation and supernova explosions in nearby galaxies
Supernovae are the violent explosions that mark the deaths of many stars. They are so bright that they can be detected at extreme distances, and many thousands have been observed by astronomers.
However, even after decades of detailed study, many mysteries remain about what types of stars explode as supernovae, and what causes the explosions to occur. This talk will describe some recent detective work where we examine the 'scene of the crime' after the supernova has faded to determine the likely properties of the star suffering this fate.
