Session 1 of the 2019 Art 2 Science Camp for children ages 8-12.
Nuclear and astrophysics aspects for the rapid neutron capture process in the era of multimessenger observations (Opens in a new window)
This workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to address the many aspects of nuclear physics and astrophysics that must be considered and properly understood in order to model the r-process
The registration will be open from April 15th. For US participants, there is an opportunity to obtain travel support to ECT* workshops through the EUSTIPEN program.
Currently enrolled high school students participate in a week-long nuclear astrophysics "boot camp" filled with lectures, experiments, and social activities.
We provide training in nuclear detection for this veteran bridge program
An informal meeting to discuss weak interactions in hot and dense matter encountered in supernovae and neutron star mergers will be held at the Institute for Nuclear Theory June 3-6, 2019.
This is the ninth in a series of former JINA and now JINA-CEE meetings that brings together JINA-CEE participants, collaborators, and other interested researchers in nuclear physics, astronomy, and astrophysics to discuss progress and future directions related to the understanding of the origin of the elements and neutron stars.
This specialized workshop is timely as several experimental opportunities are now opening up. This workshop brings together experimentalists from several labs and the groups performing i-process nucleosynthesis calculations. We will discuss dedicated experimental and theoretical effort for improving our understanding of this process which is required for a better understanding of the origin of the heavy elements.
This is a JINA-CEE supported workshop that aims to bring together different areas of research that all involve studies of heated neutron star crusts. This includes observations of different manifestations of neutron stars, theoretical calculations and simulations, and nuclear experiments. One of the primary goals of this dedicated workshop is to have a facilitated discussion about the puzzling source of shallow crustal heating, and what observations/experiments/calculations are needed to move forward.
April's South Bend Science Cafe is dedicated to this year's One Book, One Michiana by the St Joseph County Public Library https://sjcpl.lib.in.us/one-book
Students learned about pressure and forces while making explosive art during our second visit this year.
(i) r-process production in GR simulations of the double
neutron stars and CCSNe; the impact of neutrinos.
(ii) The assembly of double neutron stars and r-process
enrichment of the Galaxy and its satellites.
(iii) GW170827; kilonova emission from theoretical perspective.
(iv) GW170817; Modeling and observations of the associated kilonova.
(v) r-process production from the experimental nuclear physics perspective.
(vi) Observations of the r-process enhanced metal poor stars.
Children were introduce to the scientific method and states of matter with ooblek
Students from St Pius spent the day at Notre Dame learning about science with various campus groups. They learned about circuits and electricity through an Art 2 Science activity with JINA-CEE
250 students participated in the regional science fair. JINA-CEE provides judges for the regional fair as well as some local school fairs. We also provide prizes to support physics, astronomy, and scientific curiosity.
