Presentation – Astrocharlas Presenta: Transformando Estrellas en Oro

When: April 26, 2021 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Astrocharlas Presents: Turning Stars into Gold

"Muy rara vez se nos ocurre que todos los elementos de la Tabla Periódica
tuvieron que ser sintetizados. Dicha generación es un subproducto crucial de la
producción de energía en las estrellas. Sin ella la vida en la Tierra no sería posible.
Muchos detalles acerca de los procesos astrofísicos responsables de la formación
de los elementos preciosos como el platino y el oro aún son un misterio."

Astronomy Talk in Spanish Streamed over YouTube

"Rarely does it occur to us that all the elements of the Periodic Table must have been created. Their creation is a crucial subproduct of the energy production in stars. Without them, life on Earth would not be possible. Much of the details surrounding the astrophysical processes of the formation of the precious elements, such as platinum and gold, remain a mystery."
