Abstract
The relationship among nuclear structure, the weak processes in nuclei, and astrophysics becomes quite apparent in supernova explosion and nucleosynth esis studies. In this brief article, I report on progress made in the last few years on calculating electron capture and beta-decay rates in iron-grou p nuclei. I also report on applications of these rates to Type-Is nucleosyn thesis studies.
