Jesper Sollerman, one of Sweden's leading astronomers, holds a lecture on how, among other things, the gold in the Universe was formed and how it relates to the recently discovered gravitational waves (which gave last year's Nobel Prize).

Jesper Sollerman is a professor of Astronomy at Stockholm University and is looking for exploding stars in space.

With new optical robot telescopes, new supernovae are found every night, but the astronomy of the future must also contain information from other channels, neutrinos and gravity waves.

The elements around us are created just in exploding stars and crashing neutron stars, and here Sollerman tells us about the pursuit of Gold's source.
