Nuclear Astrophysics

Stellar evolution and Cosmological processes (after the first three minutes) are for the most part, nuclear processes. Nuclear Astrophysics, the study of these processes, reached a level of maturity where Stars and Cosmological events can be used to study fundamental questions in Physics. We will review some of these processes as an introduction to Nuclear Astrophysics, where stars have been used to study neutrino properties and deviation from the standard model. I will review a few of these questions that were studied at the Laboratory for Nuclear Science (LNS) at Avery Point together with an emphasis on open questions that are now being addressed at the LNS.
