KCGI Prof. Sakka and Associate Prof. Aoki's article was published in "Living Kyoto" newspaper.

On August 1, "Enchanted by Stars," an interview with Prof. Kazushi Sakka and Associate Prof. Seiichiro Aoki of Kyoto College of Computer Science and Graduate Institute (KCGI), appeared on the front page and second page of "Living Kyoto," a free general lifestyle information newspaper with a circulation of 490,000 distributed in Kyoto City and its vicinity.

In the article, Prof. Sakka introduced many stars with names related to Kyoto, such as "Kyoto," "Kamogawa," and "Nijo," as well as an anecdote in which Abe Seimei, a yin-yang master in the Heian period (794-1185), said he saw a celestial event.

The mechanism of supernova explosions is being elucidated, and elements (left over from supernova explosions) are used as materials for the birth of the next generation of stars, so the death of a star leads to the birth of a new star," said Associate Professor Aoki.

The article, titled "Enchanted by the Stars," also includes a record of a visit to the Hanayama Observatory of the Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, by Brian May, an astrophysicist and guitarist of the British rock band Queen, in January this year.
