NAM 2007 Day Two

Day two of the UK’s National Astronomy Meeting was very good. It started with two excellent talks given by two excellent speakers. It ended with drinks and dancing at Preston’s National football Museum (odd venue choice, in my opinion).

The day began with a talk titled ‘50 Years of Nucleosynthesis’ and it was given by Dr. Amanda Karakas of the Mount Stromlo Observatory in Australia. She is interested, essentially, in the chemicals that stars make and the nuclear reactions that go on inside them at various times in their lives. Her talk was a tribute to an article called ‘Synthesis of the Elements in Stars’ by Burbidge, Burbidge, Fowler
