Scientists probe the conditions of stellar interiors to measure nuclear reactions

Most of the nuclear reactions that drive the nucleosynthesis of the elements in our universe occur in very extreme stellar plasma conditions. This intense environment found in the deep interiors of stars has made it nearly impossible for scientists to perform nuclear measurements in these conditions -- until now. In a unique cross-disciplinary collaboration between… Continue reading Scientists probe the conditions of stellar interiors to measure nuclear reactions
