Gamma-ray bursts and supernovae: from the central engines to the observer

  A four-week scientific program on extreme explosive events (such as gamma-ray bursts, compact object mergers, core-collapse supernovae) is held at Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale and sponsored by the Ψ2 initiative of the Paris-Saclay University. In this program we aim to bring together and foster interactions between several communities (core collapse supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, neutron star mergers and magnetars). For this […]

Gender stereotypes

The APC laboratory, one of UnivEarthS’ trustee, is committed to promoting and defending the place of women in science and particularly in physics. The persistence of gender stereotypes in professional careers was the subject of a discussion meeting organised by the Pôle égalité femmes hommes and the association Genera. A glimpse of these stereotypes that have a long life.
