In the first stage of this paper, we perform detailed calculations of the electron capture cross sections on nuclei under laboratory conditions. We use the nuclear method known as proton-neutron quasi-particle random phase approximation (pn-QRPA). In the second stage, we translate the above mentioned e--capture cross sections to the stellar environment. As a concrete nuclear target we use the 56Fe and the 66Zn isotopes, which belong to the iron group nuclei and play prominent role in stellar nucleosynthesis: i) in pre-supernova phase and ii) in supernova phase.
