Nuclear physicists at the GANIL facility/Institute of Research into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (IRFU) are using a heavy-ion accelerator to recreate experiment conditions in order to probe the physics of dying massive stars, before they explode (in a supernova).
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
