Big bang nucleosynthesis the modeling of the early universe by the standard big bang model gives a scenario that involves twelve nuclear interactions that led to the present cosmic abundances of elements outside the stars. The abundance of chemical elements in the universe is dominated by the large amounts of hydrogen and helium which were produced in the big bang remaining elements, making up only about 2% of the universe, were largely produced by supernovae and certain red giant stars.

The term nucleosynthesis refers to the formation of heavier elements, atomic nuclei with many protons and neutrons, from the fusion of lighter elements the big bang theory predicts that the early universe was a very hot place. Supernova nucleosynthesis and cosmic ray spallation are also significant sources of and also that there was a general trend toward abundance of light elements.

Cosmic abundance of the elements and nucleosynthesis william wordsworth essays. The elements created in stellar nucleosynthesis range in atomic numbers from six to at least 98 (californium), which has been detected in spectra from supernovae synthesis of these heavier elements occurs either by nuclear fusion (including both rapid and slow multiple neutron capture) or by nuclear fission, sometimes followed by beta decay. The cosmic abundance of light elements is a primary piece of evidence in favor of the big bang model stars are fusion factori. Neutron star mergers and nucleosynthesis of heavy elements from cosmic abundances as records of stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis, source:inspirehepnet.
Stellar nucleosynthesis is the process by which elements are created within stars by combining the protons and neutrons together from the nuclei of lighter elements all of the atoms in the universe began as hydrogen fusion inside stars transforms hydrogen into helium, heat, and radiation.
