    this planet we live on. The star is one of these objects, sometimes we wonder how they maintain their brightness and attractiveness. The main sequence stars, red dwarf stars and white dwarf stars are some of these objects. The stages of each star are very different and have different variations of life. The life of each star varies being that the longest a star can survive is up to trillions of years. There are trillions of stars that sparkle in the sky and each star are very different from each

    People say stella nurseries is where the stars was born. Red Super Giant-The Red Super Giant color is form by its undergoing nuclear fusion in the outershell,the shell form up and they like expand and the expantation causes the color to form.Red Super Giant is one of the largest known stars.It consumes its own core supply of hydrogen fuel.The Red Super Giant star is about 88 light years from earth.The star can be a variable because its

  • Why Are Stars Mistaken For Stars

    Also known as the ¨Stellar nurseries¨ - i.e. The place where stars are born. And for many centuries, distant galaxies were often mistaken for these massive clouds. Approximately 99% of the ISM is composed of gas, while about 75% of its mass takes the form of hydrogen and the remaining 25% as helium. The interstellar gas consists partly of neutral atoms and molecules, as well as charged particles (aka plasma), such as iron and electrons. The gas is extremely dilute, with an average density of about

  • A Star: The Process Of Death Of A Star

    1078 Words  | 5 Pages

    created by the death of a star, or from the Big Bang itself. How stars burn and eventually die out is part of a process known as stellar evolution. A star will begin its life as a cloud of gas, and with the help of gravity, the cloud will condense to form a star, which burns happily most of its long life. However, when the star’s fuel begins to run out, the star will change once again. The change a star undergoes is directly affected by the its mass, so therefore a star with low mass will go through

  • Star Light, Star Bright...What Are Stars? Essay

    636 Words  | 3 Pages

    destructive explosions. Stars, through their violent birth to their even more violent death, manufacture the elements necessary for life. These giant balls of superheated gas begin their lives as nebulas, slowly evolving into the magnificent lights we see burning in the night sky and eventually dying by gravity, the same force that helped create them, scattering the plethora of elements they created

  • The Sun Is A Star

    941 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Sun is a star that is located at the centre of our solar system composed primarily of hydrogen and helium with smaller quantities of oxygen, carbon, neon, and iron. The sun keeps our planets in orbit due to its’ large gravitational forces and provides our planet with heat. There are many different ways in which stars can be classified, and The Sun is listed as a G-type Main Sequence star and is also known as a yellow dwarf. It is currently in a phase called the “main sequence” in which 4 hydrogen

  • Star History

    The life cycle of a star is dependent on its mass. The larger the mass, the quicker it will die out, whereas stars which are no more than half the size of our Sun can live up to hundreds of billion years. However no matter how large the star is, they all begin their lives in a nursery known as a molecular cloud. A molecular cloud is a giant condensation of dust and molecular gas. They are regions of relatively dense interstellar gas and dust with hydrogen molecules as well as carbon and silicate

  • The Death Of A Star

    ways, Stars are just like humans. They also go through astonishing stages, all leading up to its death. The death of a star will probably be one of the most beautiful and terrifying moments we wont get to witness. But our sun being such a key factor in our everyday life, is reason enough to know the importance of its life cycle and the process it will undertake as it begins to perish. But in order to understand how and why a star dies we first must ask ourselves: what exactly makes up a star? We

  • Star Patterns

    691 Words  | 3 Pages

    Stars come in a variety of sizes, luminosities, surface temperatures and masses. Through these different characteristics, it is found that there is a pattern (with some special cases). This pattern was first recognized by Danish astronomer Ejnar Hertzsprung and American astronomer Henry Norris Russel during the first decade of the 20th century. They plotted various stars' luminosities on one axis and spectral types on the other. This showed the pattern. These patterns are shown on graphs and are

  • Neutron Stars : A Neutron Star

    1885 Words  | 8 Pages

    Neutron stars are “an incredibly object made of neutron’s, like a giant atomic nucleus.” In the year 1934 two astronomers at CIT made predictions that a collapse of a large star or sun would produce a neutron star. When a star 's mass exceeds roughly 1.4M and has a iron core. It is no longer able to support itself, the core collapse from exponential forces. This is referred to as a type ii supernova or a core-collapse supernova. These newly discovered neutron stars had notable characteristics.
