But heavier elements like strontium are more difficult to explain. For a long time, physicists thought these hefty elements mostly formed during supernovas — like kilonova but on a smaller scale and resulting from the explosion of massive stars at the ends of their lives.
But it's become clear that supernovas alone can't explain how many heavy elements are out there in the universe. Related: The 12 Strangest Objects in the Universe. Strontium turning up in the aftermath of this first detected neutron-star collision could help confirm an alternative theory, that these collisions between much smaller, ultradense objects actually produce most of the heavy elements we find on Earth. Physics doesn't need supernovas or neutron-star mergers to explain every chunky atom around.
Album) sun is relatively young and light, so it mostly fuses hydrogen into helium. But bigger, older stars can fuse elements as heavy as iron with its 26 protons, according to NASA. However no star gets hot or dense enough before the last moments of its life to produce any elements between proton cobalt and proton uranium. And yet, we find heavier elements on Earth all the time, as a pair of physicists noted in a article published in the journal Nature. Thus, the mystery. About half of those extra-heavy elements, including strontium, are formed through a process called "rapid neutron capture," or the "r-process" — a series of nuclear reactions that occur under extreme conditions and can form atoms with dense nuclei loaded with protons and neutrons.
But scientists have yet to figure out what systems in the universe are extreme enough to produce the sheer volume of r-process elements seen in our world. Some had suggested supernovas were the culprit. Tracy Allen. A well-intentioned and well-executed effort that may be too slight to really stand the test of time. Patrick Bromley.

Cancel Resend Email. Niels Bohr explained the line spectrum of the hydrogen atom by assuming that the electron moved in circular orbits and that orbits with only certain radii were allowed. Lines in the Album) were due to transitions in which an electron moved from a higher-energy orbit with a larger radius to a lower-energy orbit with smaller radius.
The orbit closest to the nucleus represented the ground state of the atom and was most stable; orbits farther away were higher-energy excited states. Transitions from an excited state to a lower-energy state resulted in the emission of light with only a limited number of wavelengths.
Modified by Joshua Halpern Howard University. Learning Objectives Album) know the relationship between atomic spectra and the electronic structure of atoms. Line Spectra Although objects at high temperature emit a continuous spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, a different kind of spectrum is observed when pure samples of individual elements are heated.
Johann Balmer — A mathematics teacher at a secondary school for girls in Switzerland, Balmer was 60 years old when he wrote the paper on the spectral lines of hydrogen that made him famous. Balmer published only one other paper on the topic, which appeared when he was 72 years old.
Summary There is an intimate connection between the Album) structure of an atom and its spectral characteristics.
