Periodic Table of the Elements color-coded to indicate probable element origins.



English: Periodic table showing origin of elements in the Solar System, based on data by Jennifer Johnson at Ohio State University. The percentages of each element's origin are represented by squares (out of a hundred) to make it easier to estimate proportions; hovering over the SVG image gives precise figures as tooltips. Elements above Plutonium are not included. Also see Johnson's explanation at where she cautions "we still don’t know everything..."
Deutsch: Periodensystem der Elemente im Sonnensystem nach Jennifer Johnson von der Ohio State University. Die prozentualen Anteile der Herkünfte der Elemente sind durch Kästchen dargestellt (von Hundert) um die Abschätzung der Verhältnisse zu vereinfachen. Elemente jenseits von Plutonium werden nicht dargestellt. Bitte beachten Sie auch die Einschränkungen auf:
Français : Tableau périodique des éléments dessiné en fonction de l'origine de ces derniers. Le travail est inspiré du site Jennifer Johnson, Ohio State University.
Big Bang fusion = éléments issus du Big Bang.
Exploding massive stars = éléments créés lors de la mort des étoiles massives.
Cosmic rays fission = éléments créés par l'interaction de la matière avec les rayons cosmiques
Dying low-mass stars = éléments issus des étoiles plus petites.
Merging neutron stars : Éléments issus de la collision entre étoiles à neutrons.
Exploding white dwarfs : Éléments issus de l'explosion de naines blanches.
