Not so long ago, Professor Wasserburg and I were involved in an erudite search for an eclectic name for our first six digit isotopic ratio. The final acronym for “basaltic achrondite best initial”, BABI, has now become a recognizable entity found even in a subject index. It marks in a possibly more succinct manner than I may have appreciated originally the beginnings of a new chapter in what might be considered isotope archaeology for the sun, as opposed to the well-documented application of isotopes to the origins of Hellenic marbles.
