Heterogeneous supernova debris formed the solar system. Cores of inner planets formed in the central iron rich region. The Sun formed on the collapsed supernova core. Lighter elements and the lighter isotopes of each element are enriched at the solar surface. The most abundant nuclide in the Sun is Iron 56, the decay product of doubly magic Nickel 56. Doubly magic Oxygen 16 is next most abundant. The least abundant elements, Li, Be, and B, have loosely bound nucleons. Abundance is linked with…

Neutron Repulsion
Earth is connected gravitationally, magnetically and electrically to its heat source - a neutron star that is obscured from view by waste products in the photosphere. Neutron repulsion is like the
