Description

In this contribution I will review the state of the art measurements for the symmetry energy from both astrophysical and terrestrial laboratories. In particular the recent detection of gravitational radiation from the GW170817 event shed light on the properties of the neutron star equation of state, thus comprising both the study of the symmetry energy and stellar radius. Furthermore, I shall address the question on the possibility of a universal symmetry energy contribution to the neutron star equation of state under restricted Direct Urca cooling. When these two aspects are combined, powerful predictions for the neutron star equation of state are obtained.
