Lugaro, Maria; Doherty, Carolyn L; Karakas, Amanda; Maddison, Sarah T; Liffman, Kurt; Garcia-Hernandez, D. A.; Siess, Lionel; Lattanzio, John


The composition of the most primitive solar system condensates, such as calcium-aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs) and micron-sized corundum grains, show that short-lived radionuclides (SLR), e.g., 26Al, were present in the early solar system. Their abundances require a local or stellar origin, which, however, is far from being understood. We present for the first time the abundances of several SLR up to 60Fe predicted from stars with initial mass in the range approximately 7-11M⊙. These stars...[Show more]
