comment How are stellar elemental abundances quoted?
That reference says (dex), and you can obtain 8% only by decimal logarithm.

comment How are stellar elemental abundances quoted?
Ops, sorry my mistake. I think I have the sources for an answer in a while.

comment How are stellar elemental abundances quoted?
I guess the page are numbered yet. The paper is a bit tough, please give the page number.

What does it mean the bottom? Does not this paper have page/equation numbering?

Can you give references for these numbers?

comment Star class according to initial mass
Yes indeed, if only the OP would add more details to the question...

comment Star class according to initial mass
I am not sure to understand the question. Are you in doubt about WHY the star changes its spectral classification?

comment Star class according to initial mass
Roman number is not related to the spectral type (G,M, etc), but to the luminosity class, see here: img.bhs4.com/89/9/…

Do you mean the luminosity class?

comment Can we see individual stars in other galaxies?
A supernova is a process, an event, not an object. Supernova Remnants are objects.

SNe are not stars.

comment What scientific evidence is there to support or refute the Iron Sun Hypothesis?
@DikranMarsupial, yes, I agree that peer reviewing does not guarantee quality 100%, that is why, if you do not even pass that, it is just a game. In the end, science or not can not be a matter of opinion. But this, again, is my biased and not-much-experienced thought.

comment What scientific evidence is there to support or refute the Iron Sun Hypothesis?
@DikranMarsupial, I mean, from a quick reasearch I didn't find any usual refereed astrophysics journals where Prof. Manuel published, like A&A or ApJ. My opinion is that, if your work does not pass through a referee critic analysis, probably it is not scientifically correct.

comment What scientific evidence is there to support or refute the Iron Sun Hypothesis?
@MrBurke, perhaps you missed the point, because your edit do not regard the misconceptions exposed in your answer: fusing Silicon into Iron is exothermic reaction, so it seems to me that the base of your answer is not valid. Please, could you tell me why you can't read the book that I have linked in the comment above? Btw, you can see it almost enywhere, also here.

comment What scientific evidence is there to support or refute the Iron Sun Hypothesis?
Sorry if my comments seemed troll-like, I just try to keep it short in the messages. I am not able to write an answer, but this does not prevent me to say which reasons are not good to disprove the theory. As @KeithThompson already explained, many of the points in this answer are not good, like the spectrum one. I think, this is a delicate topic anyway.

@MBurke, Iron, not silicon, is the last element produced by esothermic reactions see here. Please, rewrite your answer.

@DikranMarsupial, I think you could retire your answer: people continue to upvote it, but it is wrong... 3 out of 4 of your points are not correct, and the 4th is not supported. About your last comment: why do you mention gravity effects? However, I agree on your point of not-cited = not-reliable. But that is not a scientific reason per se.
