Donald Clayton with Roland Wielen at the Astronomisches Recheninstitute, Heidelberg. Clayton was discussing the diffusion of stellar orbits in preparation for his new theory for why the presolar AGB stars were extra rich in heavy isotopes of silicon (ApJ 484, L67 (1997)). If this approach is correct, it opens a new application for dynamical astronomy and nucleosynthesis.
