The discovery of live 60Fe in a deep-sea crust with proposed interstellar origin followed by evidence for elevated interplanetary 3He in the same crust raised the question on how to unambiguously identify the true production site of the identified 60Fe. Here, we show the implementation of the dyadic radionuclide system 60Fe / 53Mn to serve as a tool for the identification of surplus interstellar 60Fe over interplanetary production. The recent updates in experimental 60Fe and 53Mn data from iron meteorites as well as in production rate models confirm the validity and robustness of this dyadic system for future applications.
