The Star in ZOME

The Star

Potassium to Zink

Star Growth Table



Add neutrons and protons to the out side of the core and The Star is formed. All of the columns developing along the outside of the core are capped with neutrons on both ends, which is how the neutrons help hold the nucleus together against the building positive charge. Thus, these star points or columns are only five nucleons high while the core is six nucleons high. The Star stage is completed with the nucleus of zinc66

The Star





Star, six alphas pointing toward the center

Observe how one method of alpha grouping in The Star results in the alphas pointing outward. They are an alpha particle grouping which represents a 60 degree rotation for the alpha particles that make up the core. These rotated alphas can be assumed pointing out from the center or pointing toward the center of the nucleus. The alpha particle continues to be important during all stages of the nucleus. "Extra Neutrons" they cap protons that are exposed on the column ends thus shielding positive ends in the nucleus.

Overlapping alpha particles of The Star (6 purple ovals) and The Core (3 brown ovals)overlap and interlock which binds the structure of the nucleus and increases the strength of the nuclear structure or lattice.
