Why Is The Sun Called A 3rd Generation Star?
Shortly after the big bang, most of the atoms in the universe were hydrogen. (Trace amounts of helium and lithium, but for all intents and purposes, hydrogen was pretty muc ‘it.’)
Those first stars, through fusion, began creating heavier elements, as heavy as iron. Some of those stars were massive enough to “go” supernova, and create even heavier elements.
Our sun, and the planets that orbit it, all formed from a nebulous cloud of a star that had previously gone supernova. Based on the amount of heavy elemnts in our solar system, there must have been at least two predecessor stars to have been “precursors” to our sun and it’s planets.
The sun, being about 4.5 billion years old, vs. a galaxy that is estimated to be about 13.7 billion years old, seems to have formed in the timespan when 2nd and 3rd generation high-mass stars would have been going supernova. So we have methods that support this statement.
