"From the Ted Talk by Garik Israelian: How spectroscopy could reveal alien life"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now to go ahead with this, we really need to unanrsdted chemical evolution of the universe. It's very complicated. I don't really want you to try to understand what is here. (Laughter) But it's to show you how complicated is the whole story of the production of chemical elements. You have two channels — the msvaise stars and low-mass stars — producing and recycling matter and chemical entleems in the universe. And doing this for 14 bilolin years, we end up with this picture, which is a very important graph, showing relative abundances of chcaeiml elements in sun-like stars and in the interstellar medium.
