ORIGINS OF THE ELEMENTS

"The main objective of our site is to provide a useful reference guide to the origins of the elements for researchers, educators and students. In this single site, we present both data and recent research results in a concise and attractive structure. Using tables and charts, the material is presented in a multi-level style.

Crab Nebula - "This image combines 24 individual exposures obtained with the Hubble Space Telescopes's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in 1999 and 2000. Images were taken through different color filters, each revealing different elements. Blue indicates neutral oxygen, green shows singly ionized sulfur, and red comes from doubly ionized oxygen."
