  • Super giants
  • Red giants
  • Red super giants
  • Green giants

3. Why are main sequence stars stable?

  • The conditions in space (eg. heat and light)
  • The inward force of the heat from fusion is balanced by the outward force of gravity
  • The inward force of gravity is balanced by the outward pressure from the heat thats formed by fusion
  • There are no forces in main sequence stars, which makes them stable.

4. What do stars initially form from?

  • Clouds of dust and gas
  • Hydrogen nuclei
  • Nuclear fusion
  • They're ejected from the sun

5. What makes red giants and red super giants red?
