Looking inside the heart of a supernova from underground - Livestream

Alex Friedland


Core-collapse supernovae host some of the most extreme physical environments in our universe. They play a fundamental role in shaping the world around us, from seeding new star formation to spreading heavy elements around the Galaxy. The extreme physical conditions make them very valuable laboratories for particle physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics. In this talk, I will review the basic mechanism driving these gravity-powered neutrino bombs and then discuss examples of the rich physics that is imprinted on the expected neutrino signal. The DUNE experiment currently under development in the US will provide unique capabilities for observing physical processes in and around the collapsed core.
