Nucleosynthesis with the Big Bang and the Supernovas?

    Why can we only explain the nucleosynthesis with the Big Bang and the Supernovas? Where can I learn more about this subject?

    First of all, we have an Astrophysics forum on PF in which there are many discussion on nucleosythesis, supernovae and Big Bang. One should use the forum search tool to search for key words.

    A general overview of astrophysics concepts can be found at
