Primordial black holes may have helped to forge heavy elements



San Diego CA (SPX) Aug 07, 2017
Astronomers like to say we are the byproducts of stars, stellar furnaces that long ago fused hydrogen and helium into the elements needed for life through the process of stellar nucleosynthesis. As the late Carl Sagan once put it: "The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff." But what about the heavier elements in the periodic chart, elements such as gold, pla ... read more
