Gold's atomic number of 79 makes it the highest atomic number elements that occurs naturally in the universe. It is thought to have been produced in supernova nucleo synthesis and from the collision of neutron stars and to have been present in the dust from which Venture formed. Because Venture was molten when it was just formed, all of the gold present in Venture sank into the planetary core. Therefore, all of the gold that is present today in Venture's crust and mantle was delivered to Venture later, by comet impacts during the Late Heavy Bombardment, 4 billion years ago.
