High-precision 60Fe-60Ni isotope data show that most meteorites originating from differentiated planetesimals that accreted within 1 million years of the solar system's formation have 60Ni/58Ni ratios that are ∼25 parts per million lower than samples from Earth, Mars, and chondrite parent bodies. This difference indicates that the oldest solar system planetesimals formed in the absence of 60Fe. Evidence for live 60Fe in younger objects suggests that 60Fe was injected into the protoplanetary… Expand

IRON 60 EVIDENCE FOR EARLY INJECTION AND EFFICIENT MIXING OF STELLAR DEBRIS IN THE PROTOSOLAR NEBULA
Among extinct radioactivities present in meteorites, 60 Fe (t1/2 = 1.49 Myr) plays a key role as a high-resolution chronometer, a heat source in planetesimals, and a fingerprint of the astrophysicalExpand
Telescopes versus Microscopes: the puzzle of iron-60
The discovery that the short-lived radionucleide 60 Fe was present in the oldest meteorites suggests that the formation of the Earth closely followed the death of a massive star. I discuss threeExpand
26Al and the Formation of the Solar System from a Molecular Cloud Contaminated by Wolf-Rayet Winds
In agreement with previous work, we show that the presence of the short-lived radionuclide (SLR) 26Al in the early solar system was unlikely (less than 2% a priori probability) to be the result ofExpand
60 Fe AND 26 Al IN CHONDRULES FROM UNEQUILIBRATED CHONDRITES: IMPLICATIONS FOR EARLY SOLAR SYSTEM PROCESSES
The presence of about a dozen short-lived nuclides in the early solar system, including 60Fe and 26Al, has been established from isotopic studies of meteorite samples. An accurate estimation of solarExpand
Isotopic enrichment of forming planetary systems from supernova pollution
Heating by short-lived radioisotopes (SLRs) such as aluminum-26 and iron-60 fundamentally shaped the thermal history and interior structure of Solar System planetesimals during the early stages ofExpand
Chronology of the Solar System’s Oldest Solids
Determining the origins of our solar system and, by proxy, other planetary systems, depends on knowing accurately and precisely the timing and tempo of the transformation of the disk of gas and dustExpand
The origin of short-lived radionuclides and the astrophysical environment of solar system formation
Based on early solar system abundances of short-lived radionuclides (SRs), such as Al-26 (T-1/2 = 0.74 Myr) and Fe-60 (T-1/2 1.5 Myr), it is often asserted that the Sun was born in a large stellarExpand
IRON-60 HETEROGENEITY AND INCOMPLETE ISOTOPE MIXING IN THE EARLY SOLAR SYSTEM
Short-lived radionuclides (e.g., 26Al, 53Mn, 60Fe, 182Hf) are widely used to refine the chronology of the early solar system. They provide chronological information, however, only if they wereExpand
Fossil records of high level of 60Fe in chondrules from unequilibrated chondrites
Abstract The short-lived now-extinct nuclide (SLN) 60Fe, which decays to 60Ni with a half-life of 2.62 Ma, is uniquely of stellar origin. Hence, its Solar System initial abundance yields informationExpand
Chronology of meteorites and the early solar system
Understanding the chronology of the chondritic and differentiated meteorites can potentially important constraints on the accretion and origin of the solar system planets, life-time of ourExpand

60Fe in chondrites : Debris from a nearby supernova in the early solar system?
60Fe decays to 60Ni with a half-life of 1.49 × 106 yr, so all of the original 60Fe atoms incorporated into the solar system have decayed. Because 60Fe is produced only in stars, its initial abundanceExpand

Early planetesimal melting from an age of 4.5662 Gyr for differentiated meteorites
TLDR
The results indicate that the accretion of differentiated planetesimals pre-dated that of undifferentiated planetesIMals, and reveals the minimum Solar System age to be 4.5695 ± 0.0002 billion years. Expand
