Out of this world experience!
By: Haley DeBauche
Travel through the nursery of space!
We will start our journey at a stellar nebula. One of the most beautiful objects you can see in space. A stellar nebula is a place where stars are born. hen after we go to the stellar nebula we can go to planetary nebula. If you look closely at the center of the nebula there is a white dwarf on the inside of it. Nebula's are great sights to see, you would be very lucky to be able to see this beautiful sight.
Be the first to spiral through the galaxies!
The next sight on our extraordinary journey is a spiral galaxy. Spiral galaxies are characterized by their distinct flattened spiral disk. it is a gorgeous sight to see. They also have a bright colored nucleus with all different colors. next we will go to an elliptical galaxy. They do not have a bright nucleus but they are still equally as beautiful to see.
Travel through the main sequence!
We will then be traveling through the main sequence we will be able to see average and massive main sequence stars. These where little baby stars first go. There are also where stars spend most of their life.
Bring your sunglasses!
"Fee Fi Fo Fum I see a red giant and supergiant." The red giants and super giants are reddish orange stars that are very big. They are not very hot but are very bright! We will be looking at the supergiant Betelguese.
Be able to tour the end of the life cycle!
Boom! A huge explosion has just occurred creating a supernova, a explosion where the massive star throws its outer layer into space. In fact a supernova can turn into two things a neutron star or a black hole. A neutron star is a star that has electrons and protons smash together under the force of gravity. We will also visit a object so massive and dense that even light can not escape it. This is called a black hole.
Bright and beautiful
The next sight on our out of this world journey is a quasar. A quasar is a very luminous object that's starlike that generates energy at a high rate. It's very bright, but it is also very beautiful.
Visit the family of stars!
A open cluster, a group of stars that are close together. Open clusters contain older stars, but minor nearly as many as a globular cluster. A globular cluster has up to 1 million young stars. Open clusters can be kind of like your grandparents and globular clusters are like the little baby stars, so it's like you are coming to a star reunion!
Coming to an end!
The last thing on our journey will be a white dwarf. White dwarfs are hot but. It very bright. White dwarfs can also be seen in the middle of a planetary nebula. They are smaller stars but just as exiting to see as anything else in the solar system. Come take a look at a white dwarf you won't regret it.
