Star Life Cycle

Stars are Born

Stars are born in Nebulea. Nebulea are clouds of dust and gas. The formation of a star starts with a shockwave from an explosion. The disturbance causes pieces of gas and dust to stick together. Over millions of years it creates a giant ball... AND A STAR IS BORN!

Star Death

When stars get ready to die they convert all there hydrogen into helium. When all the hydrgen is gone, the star contracts making the interior temperature go way up. This heat creates more energy, making the star bigger. As the star gets bigger, the outer layers cool, and the star turns red in color. The star, now concidered a red giant, has low mass blasts, blowing of layers a little at a time like the sun and eventually, only the core is left. Then there is a loud explosion that creates MORE STARS! The old star then turns into a supernova.
