We present the status and open problems of the astrophysical sites responsible for the nucleosynthesis of Fe-group and heavier elements (with the exception of the s-process). This involves type Ia supernovae with the requirement to have a low Ye-component (for the explanation of 55Mn), the role of the core collapse supenova explosion mechanism in the composition of the Fe-group (and heavier?) ejecta, the transition between neutron star and black hole remnants as the result of the collapse of massive stars, and the relation of the latter with supernova and/or gamma-ray bursts/hypernovae. In addition, the role of compact binary mergers is discussed, especially with respect to forming the heaviest r-process elements in galactic eveolution.
