The moon, too, abuses her subjects,
But in the daytime she is ridiculous.

Arrive through the mailslot with loving regularity,
White and blank, expansive as carbon monoxide.

In science:

These stars simultaneously show some nitrogen characteristics of WN stars and some carbon of the further WC stage.
Stellar evolution with rotation X: Wolf-Rayet star populations at solar metallicity
Here we suppose that this transition phase begins when the mass fraction of carbon at the surface becomes superior to 10% of the mass fraction of nitrogen.
Stellar evolution with rotation X: Wolf-Rayet star populations at solar metallicity
The phase is supposed to end when the mass fraction of nitrogen at the surface becomes inferior to 10% of the mass fraction of carbon.
Stellar evolution with rotation X: Wolf-Rayet star populations at solar metallicity
Then during the transitional WN/WC phase, there is a huge increase of carbon, while nitrogen and helium remain constant.

The theory of the bound g factor is taken from Table 6, while the experimental data on the g factor in carbon and oxygen are from [68,69].
Simple Atoms, Quantum Electrodynamics and Fundamental Constants
Examples include systems that respond to carbon limitation, drugs, and nitrogen starvation in both organisms (tables 2,3).
Topological Generalizations of network motifs
Due to the carbon substitution there is one hole per unit cell and, B13C2 being non magnetic, band theory predicts a metallic behaviour.
Superconductivity from doping boron icosahedra
For example, for carbon, Z=6, Compton scattering is the main contribution to the total cross section between 100 keV and 10 MeV.

In contrast with nitrogen and carbon, the abundance of oxygen in WN stars has proven to be rather challenging (Hillier 1988).

The lack of any obvious spectral features indicates that the type could be DC or DQ (because no strong carbon features typical of DQ white dwarfs are included in the spectral range shown here; the “features” in all three are telluric).

For example, the prediction by Fred Hoyle concerning the 7.7 MeV excited state of 12C, which was necessary in order to increase the probability of the reaction between helium and beryllium to produce carbon, might be considered as a genuine E-Life world principle prediction.
The Aleph Cosmological Principle
In 1952, from the evident abundance of carbon — namely, E-Life —, Hoyle predicted the existence of a resonance of 12C, in nuclear reactions, at around 7.7 MeV, and almost immediately, in 1953, D.N.F.
The Aleph Cosmological Principle
After such a star undergoes its red giant phase, it will lose its outer envelope through winds and other mass-loss events and finally leave just a carbon and oxygen core.
Rates and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae
The slowly accumulating hydrogen from this star will collect onto the surface of the white dwarf, fusing into helium and eventually carbon and oxygen (Branch et al. 1995).
Rates and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae
Considerations of stellar structure and evolution allow for four possible compositions for a white dwarf that nears the Chandrasekhar mass through accretion: helium; oxygen-neon-magnesium; carbon-oxygen; and carbon-oxygen with a helium shell (Branch et al. 1995; Nomoto et al. 1997; Hillebrandt & Niemeyer 2000).
