  • Recent spectroscopic measurements in open clusters younger than the Sun with [Fe/H] {approx}> 0 showed that the abundances of neutron-rich elements have continued to increase in the Galaxy after the formation of the Sun, roughly maintaining a solar-like distribution. This growth requires neutron fluences larger than those so far assumed, as these would have too few neutrons per iron seed. We suggest that the observed enhancements can be produced by nucleosynthesis in asymptotic giant branch… CONTINUE READING
