Already denying liability ...;-)

Of course! Plausible deniability is important!

OK! LOL

Eighty million years before the solar system was formed, two neutron stars collided, creating and then spewing large amounts of heavy elements into the surrounding space. Some portion of those heavy elements coasted through space, eventually reaching the vicinity of the then-forming solar system. Those heavy elements became infused with the pre-solar accretion disk, about a tenth the mass of the moon, and became part of the planetary system that then formed. If that hypernova hadn't happened there wouldn't be nearly as much heavy elements in and on the Earth for us to be made from.

I'm trying to respect you here, but you are driving me nuts with imprecision. 

I understand stellar fusion in the general sense of there being a finite energy offlet. I understand neutron stars conceptually.  I understand what happens when they slowly spin together in a general way and the effects that mass has.  I understand how elements heavier than iron are formed via gravitational fusion after the iron death. 

ITS THE 80MY THAT IS KILLING ME HERE!  WHERE DOES THE 80MY COME FROM? 

If you know that 2 neutron stars collided 80MYA, then you have to know where they are.  Where are they?

2 colliding neutron stars would not eject their heavy elements at the speed of light.  What speed did they eject at?  That determines how far away they were from Sol-to-be.  If you don't know how far away the 2 colliding neutron stars were or the speed of the ejecta how do you come up with "80MYA"?

I'm not trying to be harsh about this.  But you are saying 2+2+"something"= 80MY years of our current time (before we existed). 

Somewhere, that 80 MYA  is quantifiable and I don't mean quantum mechanics. 

How do you know the 80MYA?

*I* don't know it, Anton Petrov knows it, and I got it from him, in the video. I don't know who told it to him, though, but some smart astrophysicist apparently figured it out. I'm not an astrophysicist, so I have to rely on what I'm told by those who know (hopefully) what they're talking about.

Well, OK then.  Why didn't you just SAY so?  I'll always accept a " I read it here" link or source.  Or something...

Whew.

Well, that's why I posted a video, so I wouldn't have to explain it myself.

We both got contra-balanced.  Peace, friend...
