Cameron, A.G.W., S.A. Colgate, and L. Grossman, 1973: Cosmic abundance of boron. Nature, 243, 204-207, doi:10.1038/243204a0.

The abundance of boron is of considerable interest, but is difficult to determine. Boron undergoes thermonuclear destruction in stellar interiors, and hence is not a normal product of stellar nucleosynthesis. Thus its abundance is low, and until now it has seemed possible to understand its production in nature as a consequence of cosmic ray bombardment of the interstellar medium. We point out here that the cosmic abundance of boron has been greatly underestimated, and that the upward revision of its abundance has important consequences in several areas of astrophysics.
