Description A long time ago, in a galaxy not-so-far away, a star exploded – and we got a glimpse of what happened deep inside. I’ll explain how we boldly observed what no telescope has observed before and introduce a next-generation neutrino telescope.

In my research, I try to figure out how stars explode. I’ll briefly explain how elementary particles called "neutrinos" allow us to look inside the centre of a star – right as it explodes! – and introduce a next-generation neutrino telescope which could give us a millisecond-by-millisecond view of the explosion.
