An international team of astrophysicists has found a new explanation for the early composition of our solar system. The researchers, led by Dr. Maria Lugaro of Monash University in Australia, have concluded that the radioactive nuclei found in meteorites billions of years old here can be met by immediate presence of a dying giant star, which is estimated six times as massive as the sun . According to them the findings of our current ideas about the origin of the solar system are changing.
