2Physics Quote:
"Stars with a mass of more than about 8 times the solar mass usually end in a supernova explosion. Before and during this explosion new elements, stable and radioactive, are formed by nuclear reactions and a large fraction of their mass is ejected with high velocities into the surrounding space. Most of the new elements are in the mass range until Fe, because there the nuclear binding energies are the largest. If such an explosion happens close to the sun it can be expected that part of the debris might enter the solar system and therefore should leave a signature on the planets and their moons." -- Thomas Faestermann, Gunther Korschinek (Read Full Article: "Recent Supernova Debris on the Moon" )

Upcoming Physics Conferences

From today we start this feature on suggestion from some of our physicist friends. If anyone wishes to freely advertize Physics jobs or conferences in 2Physics, he/she is welcome to put an entry and a web-link following our 'comment' link that can be found at the bottom of any of our postings. From time to time we'll publish the list. Our today's list is for conferences only.

July 18-21: "Quantum reality, relativistic causality, and closing the epistemic circle: an international conference in honour of Abner Shimony" (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
July 20-21: "Teaching General Relativity" (Syracuse)
July 23-29: "Eleventh Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity" (Berlin)
Jul 31-Aug 4: "Cosmic Frontiers" (Durham, UK)
August 1-4: "1st international workshop on transmission of information and energy in nonlinear & complex systems " (Singapore)
August 6-11: "Intl congress on mathematical physics" (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
August 7-15: "Key Approaches to Dark Energy" (Barcelona, Spain)
August 24-26: "Quantum Gravity in Americas" (Pennstate)
August 25-29: "3rd Feynman festival" (College Park, Maryland, USA)
September 3-12: "International advanced summer school on modern mathematical physics: theoretical cosmology and observational status of modern cosmology" (Dubna, Russia)
September 7-9: "Maxwell 150 Years On" (Aberdeen, UK)
