AND there's way too much Lithium around to come from "The Big Bang" alone. I`m not sure where you`re getting this info. While it is true that stars burn lithium as opposed to making it, the prevailing theory is that all lithium was a product of the BB.

@lauriloo: I'm not picking on you (at least this time!) I thought the same thing while watching it.
@Squrlz4: It`s fairly recent that Lithium has been added to the "Big Bang Building Blocks" because (idk how!) they`ve recently figured out that stars simply do not make it. AND literally every life form on Earth has Lithium inside it. AND there`s way too much Lithium around to come from "The Big Bang" alone. AND AND AND! If 1 (H) and 2 (He) AND 3 (Li) existed... why not 4, 5, 6... etc? Hummmm?
I suspect we`ll find (eventually!) a way to explain all this problematic Li-3. But until then it`s fun to know that bit of "trivia".

@5Cats: I'm impressed by your notes. You`re right about H and He being present in the Big Bang. Kudos. Didn`t know about Li, but I trust you and hope to check into it.
@Lauriloo: I struggled with that too. I think 5Cats nailed it with the "found" vs. "discovered" remark. Perhaps a better description would have been "the first element to be *isolated* was found by...." Hmmm. Open to suggestions on this one. =^.^=
