Ye Olde 
  1. Why do we study evolved stars?
  3. Most of the matter in the universe is created by nuclear burning processes in stars.
  5. Chemical elements that are important to life as we know (C, H, O, N) are mostly supplied by evolved stars.
  7. We would like to solve this missing piece of cosmic puzzle by understanding how evolved stars play their roles in the chemical evolution of the universe and how evolved star mass loss works in this process.
