Core-Collapse Supernova Archive People contributing to this archive Crab Supernova Remnant: NASA, ESA and Allison Loll/Jeff Hester (Arizona State University), thanks to: Davide De Martin (ESA/Hubble) Gravitational core-collapse events and supernova explosions are among the most powerful cosmic phenomena, releasing more energy within seconds than stars like the sun produce in billions of years.

They terminate the lives of massive stars, giving birth to neutron stars or stellar-mass black holes, and are responsible for the production of about half of the chemical elements heavier than iron. By far most of the energy release occurs in the form of elusive neutrinos, elementary particles that are abundantly produced when the hot, compact remnant settles and cools.

Max-Born-Institut, Aktuell

21st February 2014 The multi-electron dynamics in atoms and molecules is a great challenge in contemporary quantum physics, with implications from chemical reactions to superconductivity. A classical example, much investigated over the last two decades, has been the so-called "nonsequential" double ionization (NSDI) of atoms by an intense laser field, where "nonsequential" means that ionization does not happen one step at a time, viz. ionization of the atom later followed by ionization of the positively charged ion, but rather in one combined process. A precondition for this to happen is electron-electron correlation. Ionization appears as a paradigmatic quantum process (according to some textbooks proving the quantum nature of light).

If you are reading this you are probably an admirer of the beautiful color images produced year after year by the Hubble news team.

Until now it was difficult for anyone other than a trained astronomer to create images like these from the original grayscale Hubble data. That’s because Hubble data is stored in a special “flavor” of the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format that has been nearly impossible to open in common photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop. Now, thanks to a collaboration between ESA, ESO and NASA, a free software plugin is available that enables anyone with Adobe Photoshop CS (and, to a limited degree, other versions of Photoshop and certain other image editors) to open Hubble (and other) FITS data and process it to create finished, conventional-format digital images. The FITS Photoshop Liberator is available for download from this ESA Space Telescope site.
