Abstract NoteDuring the past several years, research teams around the world have developed astrophysics-relevant utilizing high energy-density facilities such as intense lasers and z-pinches. This work covers topics such as: hydrodynamic instabilities in astrophysics, supernovae and supernova remnant evolution, astrophysical shocks, blast waves, and more
