Universe Adventure

Do you want to learn more about whats above the clouds?

Main Sequence Star

What's a Main Sequence Star? Well a main sequence star is any star lying on a diagonal band that extends from hot stars of high luminosity to cool stars of low luminosity; any stars in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram from the upper left to the lower right of the diagram. Did you know about 90 percent of the stars in the universe, including the sun, are main sequence stars? These stars can range from about a tenth of the mass of the sun to up to 200 times as massive.

Red Giant

What's a red giant? Well a red giant is a very large star of high luminosity and low surface temperature. Red giants are thought to be in a late stage of evolution when no hydrogen remains in the core to fuel nuclear fusion.

Red Super Giant

What is a red super giant? A red super giant are an aging giant star that has consumed its core's supply of hydrogen fuel. Helium has accumulated in the core, and hydrogen is now undergoing nuclear fusion in the outer shells. These shells then expand, and the now cooler star takes on a red color. They are the largest known stars

What is a galaxy? A galaxy is a system of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust, held together by gravitational attraction. Did you know that the Milky Way is our galaxy? A fact about our galaxy is the Milky Way began as a series of dense regions in the early universe not long after the Big Bang. The first stars to form were in globular clusters that still exist. They are among the oldest stars formed in the Milky Way region.

A nebula is a cloud of gas and dust in outer space, visible in the night sky either as an indistinct bright patch or as a dark silhouette against other luminous matter. Did you know the nebula means cloud in Latin? Also if you look closely enough at night, you can see the orion nebula near orion's belt. It looks like a tiny dot to the naked eye, even though it's sixty light-years across

Stellar Nebula

What is a stellar nebula? Well a stellar nebula is a cloud of superheated gases and other elements formed by the explosive death of a massive star. Stellar nebulae emit brilliant waves of infrared light generated by dust particles within the cloud.

Planetary Nebula

What is a planetary nebula? A planetary nebula is a ring-shaped nebula formed by an expanding shell of gas around an aging star. Also scientist think that in five billion years our Sun will become a planetary nebula.

White Dwarf

A white dwarf is a small very dense star that is typically the size of a planet. A white dwarf is formed when a low-mass star has exhausted all its central nuclear fuel and lost its outer layers as a planetary nebula.

This is going to be one amazing trip. You get to see 18 different destinations for only $20,000 dollars. You're not going to want to miss this opportunity.

Black Dwarf

What is a black dwarf? A black dwarf is is a theoretical stellar remnant, specifically a white dwarf that has cooled sufficiently that it no longer emits significant heat or light. Us have use the information below if you want to learn more about a black dwarf or about the space trip.

What is a supernova? A supernova is the explosion of a star. It is the largest explosion that takes place in space. A supernova happens where there is a change in the core, or center, of a star. A change can occur in two different ways, with both resulting in a supernova.

Globular Cluster

What's a globular cluster? Globular cluster, is a large group of old stars that are closely packed in a symmetrical, somewhat spherical form. Globular clusters, so called because of their roughly spherical appearance, are the largest and most massive star clusters.

Open Cluster

What's a open cluster? A open cluster is a relatively loose grouping of stars. Also any group of young stars held together by mutual gravitation. Another thing is they aren't a lot of stars in an open cluster.

Trip to Space!!!!

Thursday, March 31st, 7pm

Los Angeles, CA, United States

Are you ready to leave for space? It's only two weeks away till we leave the ground and get shot in the air. This trip to space is going to be so much fun. We get to see 18 different destinations and you even get to learn some information about them. This trip is once in a life time trip!
