Rosner to describe the nuclear 'flame' in stars, April 29

Rosner, a faculty member at the University of Chicago, will deliver this year's Plasma Science and Technology Distinguished Speaker Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, in the Bowen Hall auditorium.

Rosner, a distinguished service professor in the astronomy and astrophysics and physics departments, will discuss "Burning Stars in One's Office: The Physics of Astrophysical Nuclear Flames."

He will describe such astrophysical phenomena as novae and supernovae being a result of the acceleration of nuclear "flames." He also will explain nuclear flames and their relation to pre-mixed combustion flames at a laboratory scale.

Rosner is a Woodrow Wilson fellow, chief scientist of Argonne National Laboratory and a fellow of the American Academy of Art and Sciences and of the American Physical Society.

The lecture is sponsored by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and the School and Engineering and Applied Science .
