    I heard from one of our speakers at an ASKC meeting that the heavier elements are created by neutron star mergers. Is this correct?

    Almost. Some heavies are made by r-process reactions in SN events. Others are made by s-process in asymptotic giant branch stars. The remainder is from neutron star merger. As I recall the only way to explain the abundance of gold is by mergers, for instance.
