Amazing developments in nuclear astrophysics

ENAM 2004

Abstract.

The time since ENAM ‘01 is short by astrophysical standards, but this period has seen some exciting progress in the area of experimental nuclear astrophysics. New results have been obtained from facilities both large and small, with stable and exotic beams. In the process, we have learned a great deal about stellar structure and evolution. This talk highlights a few of many notable results obtained since ENAM ‘01 and will attempt to place them into an astrophysical context. In the process, it may be possible to see where the field is heading and what we might anticipate over the next three years.
