Chris Fryer (Los Alamos) and Mark Leising discuss supernovae in the reading room of the Clemson astrophysics group on March 4, 2002. Fryer described his plans to computationally understand the mechanism for core-collapse supernovae. Leising, codiscoverer of the first two radioactive nuclei detected in supernova 1987A, described his new technique for measuring radioactive-nucleus yields by the x-ray line emission following radioactive decay (ApJ 563, 185, 2001).
