The Chandra X-ray Center is excited to offer a hybrid science workshop this August at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian on the subject of Supernova Remnants and Their Progenitors.

Chandra, with its high-spatial resolution and high-sensitivity, has provided a detailed perspective into the demise of massive stars through their explosive remnants. This science workshop will cover observational and theoretical topics of supernova remnants and explore the connections to their progenitors and progeny. Topic coverage will also include synergies with other X-ray missions (past, present, and future) and multiwavelength observations.
