Quote from: Unbeliever on July 20, 2019, 04:47:38 PMOK! LOLEighty million years before the solar system was formed, two neutron stars collided, creating and then spewing large amounts of heavy elements into the surrounding space. Some portion of those heavy elements coasted through space, eventually reaching the vicinity of the then-forming solar system. Those heavy elements became infused with the pre-solar accretion disk, about a tenth the mass of the moon, and became part of the planetary system that then formed. If that hypernova hadn't happened there wouldn't be nearly as much heavy elements in and on the Earth for us to be made from.

I don't know who told it to him, though, but some smart astrophysicist apparently figured it out. I'm not an astrophysicist, so I have to rely on what I'm told by those who know (hopefully) what they're talking about.
