Think Tank: When Stars Go Boom

Primary January 11th, 2018

Where did life on Earth come from? The answer lies in the stars, which have lives of their own. Stars are responsible for many of the materials that form us and everything around us…

In “Life and Death of Stars: When Stars Go Boom”, a scientist (played by Jerrika Hinton from e.g., Grey’s Anatomy) and a visualization expert (played by Wil Wheaton from e.g., Big Bang Theory, Star Trek: TNG) tell you a story about a supernova - a star that is many times more massive than our Sun that ends its life in a spectacular explosion, producing many of the useful elements that we have on earth. With Ed Wasser.
