The consequence is that helium burning must proceed by a three-body reaction. In particular, if the Be nucleus interacts with another He before falling apart, an excited state of C, denoted C*, may result. Decay of the excited C nucleus to its ground state then finishes the so-called triple-alpha reaction. 2 12 4 4 s He+ He+> Be 4 l2 *Be+ He-± C* l2 "c*-> c+ r 47 which effectively is the reaction 4 4 4 2 He+ He+ HeW C + r The two-stage nature of the triple-alpha reaction was recognized by Salpeter in the 1950s.
