Join us for a talk and discussion on Neutron Stars: Remenant of a Cosmic Explosion by Avishek Basu, a research scholar at National Centre for Radio Astrophysics,Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
About the Event:
Avishek Basu shall be talking about the lifecycle of a neutron star -- from their birth to their supposed death and while doing so he will also be shedding light on the various aspects of science that can be used to explain their observable properties. Neutron Stars are one of the most fascinating objects in the cosmos. They are what remains after an explosive collapse of massive stars, usually known as a Supernova. A Neutron Star is like a giant atomic nucleus of size roughly about 20 km which rotates a few hundred times a second. It's dynamic environment and unknown composition make up many topics of interest for scientists from a wide range of fields. Extreme physical conditions that cannot be recreated in the laboratory can be probed by observing this exotic object.
