Nuclear Astrophysics at the Exascale

Our collaboration aims to study the astrophysical events responsible for the production of many of the heaviest of the chemical elements using realistic simulations containing the most complete physics available. This complexity will require these simulations run on the world's most advanced supercomputers.

Simulation Codes

The TEAMS collaboration is developing some of the most advanced simulation codes to study the lives and deaths of stars.

Learn more about TEAMS codes.

Nuclear Physics

In the core of many of our simulations sits a neutron star, more than a solar mass of neutrons packed into less than 20 kilometers.

Learn more about the physics of neutron stars.

Seeing the Results

TEAMS simulations aren't complete until we examine what they will look like in the multitude of detectors and telescopes that study the heavens.

Where are your Atoms from?

The atoms that make up your body and our world were formed billions of years ago, far across the Galaxy, ago .

It is important that we present TEAMS science to both our scientific colleagues and the general public.

Here are a few of our recent results.


Attacking puzzles as complex as these in nuclear astrophysics requires a wide range of expertise. Our collaboration therefore includes a dozen institutions, both National Laboratories and Universities.
