    Open to Public

    When a star explodes, astronomers use their telescopes to investigate: to identify the star and the cause of death, and when homicide is suspected, to look for trace signatures of the perpetrator. This talk will cover modern techniques in supernova "crime scene investigation" from a local astronomer - a "Coroner for the Stars" - and discuss the cosmological consequences of violence such as zombie stars and insterstellar civilizations caught in the crossfire
