At the suggestion of Dr. E.M. Burbidge, Dr. G.R. Burbidge, Professor W.A. Fowler, and Professor F. Hoyle, we have carried out a determination of the abundances of platinum and iridium in meteorites. The purpose of the work was to obtain data for a more precise estimation of the abundance peak near mass 195 in the atomic abundance curve, since both the observed(1) and calculated(2) abundances for this interesting γ-process abundance region were only approximate.
