“Astronomers observe exploding stars and astrophysicists model them on supercomputers,” said Wrede, assistant professor of physics at MSU’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory. “At NSCL and, in the future at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, we’re able to measure the nuclear properties that drive stellar explosions and synthesize the chemical elements – essential input for the models. Rare isotopes are like the DNA of exploding stars.”
