We have used thermal ionization mass spectrometry to measure the isotopic compositions of Sr in size-sorted samples (the KJ series) of interstellar SiC separated from the Murchison meteorite. The Sr compositions are radically anomalous in comparison to those in normal solar system materials. As for other heavy elements in presolar SiC, the anomalies can be(More)
The stony-iron meteorites Bencubbin and Weatherford contain nitrogen with a ratio of nitrogen-15 to nitrogen-14 larger than normal by as much as a factor of 2. The excess nitrogen-15 may be due either to a nucleosynthetic origin or to extreme isotopic fractionation. In the former case, it may reflect failure to homogenize nitrogen-15 produced in nova(More)
