Still no sign of the rest of the stars making up the solar cluster. Isotope data indicates that the sun was in the vicinity of a star between 15 & 20 solar masses that added a bit of extra oomph to the condensing dust that became asteroids & rocky planetismals in the early solar system. They could not have been in the gas & dust prior to the condensation of the solar system, as the short halflife isotopes would have decayed before they condensed into the asteroids. Keep looking guys.
Have a nice day Ag
