This booklet represents a slightly advanced background of encounters, adjustments in examine curiosity and a few very fascinating effects. at the beginning it's the very fruitful interplay of Ecology and Geology. the viewpoint of ecologists is intensely fresh for not easy technology humans. interplay and inter-relationships are the focal point of Ecology while the normal sciences, similar to Geology, have attempted to isolate the usual phenomena in order that thye will be studied in a extra rigorous demeanour.

Example text

In the case of He and D/H, within the large uncertainties in the observational data, the concordance is excellent. L i remains problematic though several possible (if not perfect) astrophysical solutions are available. Finally, as the data on the light element abundances improves, BBN will sharpen its ability to probe physics beyond the standard model. As such it remains the only available tool for which to examine directly the very early universe. ϊ0 4 4 7 ί0 v 4 7 Acknowledgments This work of was partially supported by DOE grant DE-FG02-94ER-40823.

First, hydrogen is the most abundant matter in the cloud from which the star formed. Second, since hydrogen has charge unity, the fusion of two hydrogen nuclei has a relatively small Coulomb repulsion to overcome. This means that the burning can occur at the relatively low temperatures of roughly 10 to 30 million Kelvins. Hydrogen burning occurs in two key reaction sequences, the PP (or protonproton) chains and the CNO (Carbon-Nitrogen-Oxygen) bi-cycle. Both sequences were first understood by Hans Bethe and his collaborators in the 1930s, for which work Bethe won the Nobel Prize in 1967 (3).
