Most of the atoms you are made of were themselves made in stars. Read more about this interesting idea here.
There are two cataclysmic possibilities for rearrangements of nuclei that result in a movement towards a lower-energy, more...
This episode discusses: mass defect and atomic mass units; and, fission and fusion linked to binding energy. And is...
