Title: ACE Mission - Fusion and Nucleosynthesis
Url: http://education.gsfc.nasa.gov/experimental/99invest.Site/science-bri...
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: This educational brief explains the idea that nuclear fusion is thought to be the mechanism by which virtually all of the elements around us are created. Topics include the proton-proton cycle, the carbon-nitrogen-oxygen cycle, and endothermic reactions in supernova explosions. There is also a discussion of the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), a spacecraft intended to study the origin and evolution of the elements produced by our Sun.
