  • Stars
    • 1.Protostar
      • Clouds of dust and gas, force of gravity makes it spiral together.
    • If bigger than the sun...
      • 2.Main sequence star
        • Gravity is changed to heat, temp rises. When hot enough hydrogen nuclei go FUSION to form helium nucliei.
          • Gives out heat and light and a star is now born. Smaller balles of gas could make planets and orbit star.  ENTERS LONG STABLE PERIOD

      • RED SUPER GIANT
        • SUPERNOVA
          • Neutron star
            • Black HOLE
