Congratulations. Do you think that elements created by kilonovae are evenly spread out or fairly lumpy among current and recent star forming regions? I wonder if the abundance of gold and other heavy elements in our solar system might be higher than average compared to other Milky Way star systems formed in the last 5 billion years.

Thanks. I would say that your analogy puts you in the lumpy camp with me. I saw an astronomer state that it was obvious that the kilonova materials would be spread out evenly in the galaxy. I had a hard time buying that presumption. I have been thinking about how to go about testing the matter.
