Zombie and Degenerate Stars: A Walk Through the Star Graveyard

When the interior of a star runs out of nuclear fuel, it stops generating energy and we say that the star has "died". However, the death of a star is neither unique nor final... Stars generate corpses that are very different and interesting in many ways: white dwarfs, neutron stars and even black holes. In this talk, we will discuss these strange stellar objects, understand their origin from quantum mechanics and discuss the astronomical observations that have confirmed their existence.


TOC-TOC program

TOC-TOC is the onomatopoeia that refers to the noise we hear when someone knocks on a door. Well, this project aims to facilitate communication between the UB and the various social agents interested in the research carried out at the University. The participating researchers offer informative talks in which they explain their work in a clear and understandable way. All of them - each from their area of ​​knowledge - share the objective of bringing their work closer to society.

Therefore, institutions interested in receiving a visit from one of the researchers included in this project only have to knock on our door by filling out the following form.
