The Neutron Stars Zoo : Zooming in and out to address their diversity, evolution and supernova progenitors

Event details of Samar Safi-Harb (University of Manitoba)
Date 15 September 2021
Time 16:00 -17:00

Neutron stars are among the most fascinating and intriguing objects in the Universe. Despite their discovery over five decades ago, their impact keeps growing; these engines have been, for example, recently linked to mysterious cosmic phenomena including Kilonovae and possibly Fast Radio Bursts.

I will highlight the growing diversity of neutron stars, revealed thanks to X-ray and radio observations, and the path we have been following towards unification of their different classes. I will show how probing their wind nebulae and hosting supernova remnants helps address their physical properties, evolution and supernova progenitors while driving the science case for future astrophysics missions.
