Astronomy Professor Jennifer Johnson has re-created a periodic table color-coded with the cosmic origins of all the elements.
Humans have always marveled at the night sky. Yet, it has been impossible to monitor and record the entire sky nightly to seek transient, variable, sometimes violent events marking the evolution and transformation of our universe. Until now.
