Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Astrophysicist professor Andrew King explains how the stars live and die. He takes a look at our own star, the sun, and shows how the stars produce all the chemical elements beyond helium. Understanding the stars, he says, is key to understanding our universe and our planet. King is head of theoretical astrophysics, Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Leicester.
