This T-Shirt asks "How were the heavy elements from Iron to Uranium made?"
This scientific question relates to the origin and formation of heavy elements in the universe. It requires an understanding of nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. The answer to this question involves a detailed discussion of the processes that occur in stars and during supernovae, which are responsible for the synthesis of heavy elements beyond iron.
What is the difference between heavy elements and light elements? How many of each are there? What type of energy is needed to create heavy vs light elements? How long does it take? What plays the biggest role? Can humans create elements artificially now?
