The most massive stars of the Universe suffer the fate of core collapse. Despite much recent progress, the underlying mechanism that allows such stars to subsequently explode is still not fully understood. A satellite based gamma-ray observation of the isotope 44Ti may hold the key to resolving this problem. The amount of this isotope in stellar ejecta, available for detection, is thought to...

After a brief description of the n_TOF facility and of the experimental setups employed for capture and fission measurements, an overview of the most notable results obtained so far in the first experimental area (EAR1) - especially focused on nuclear astrophysics - will be presented in the seminar. The capability of the facility and the extent of the experimental program will be...
