Abstract

Recent calculations provide convincing evidence that the naturally occurring nuclei were produced in explosions. The required temperature, density and expansion rate strongly suggest that before the explosion the objects were ordinary evolved massive stars. We review these new developments and present a new table indicating our hypothesis concerning the origin of the nuclei in the mass range 20≤A≤62.
