X-Ray Studies of Supernova Remnants: The Persistence of Memory
Carles Badenes, Tel-Aviv University
The unprecedented capabilities of Chandra for spatially
resolved spectroscopy have revolutionized our understanding of Supernova
Remnants. I will review the fundamental open issues in core collapse and
Type Ia supernova explosions, and the progress that has been made using
X-ray observations of supernova remnants.
