Stellar Nucleosynthesis - What makes it fascinating?

  1. Jun 9, 2012 #1
    I've just completed a research assignment on Stellar Nucleosynthesis, and I feel it needs something that will make it stand out.

    Our class were given the job of researching and investigating a topic that is related to Nuclear Power/Energy/Physics.

    To obtain top marks, it's essential that our investigation covers what we are currently and/or have studied.

    Every investigation will have to cover Transmutation, Decay, and Alpha/Beta/Gamma radiation.

    Having covered this in my investigation, I was wondering if there's anything fascinating/interesting about Stellar Nucleosynthesis that will make my Investigation stand out.


    TL;DR What are some interesting facts about Stellar Nucleosynthesis?

    P.S. I struggled to find a table of data and derived graph related to Stellar Nucleosynthesis. If anyone could help me with this, it'd much appreciated.
