  • Red Dwarfs: With Coco and Riceball
  • Have you ever wondered what's up with red stars?
  • Have you ever wondered what was up with those red stars?
  • Do you mean like Proxima Centauri? That's the star closest to the star.
  • Red dwarfs are the most common star in our universe! Red dwarfs have less than 50% of our Sun"s mass.
  • Therefore, that is the reason why it emits less light and is generally cooler.
  • Red stars have a temperature of ≤ 3,700 K.
  • Yes, photons are trapped inside stars and must get out. The photons are continuously being released and then absorbed by the Sun's atoms.
  • Aren't photons sources of energy in a star?
  • Not to forget that the jumps made by the photons loose energy over time, and when they have reached the star's surface a lot of energy has been lost. And then downgrade from gamma rays to wavelengths that you can see.
  • The photons are then released from the stars surface and travel through space. They keep on going until they hit something. So when you stepm outside your eyes are the first thing the rays have bumped ito since they left the star.
  • Don't forget to mention that red dwarfs are on the K or M spectral type.
  • Hydrogen and helium are the main elements in stars
  • Thermonuclear : nuclear reactions that happen only in high temperatures
  • The thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen creates helium, they constantly remix through the star therefore denying the buildup that occurs in the core and elongates the period of fusion and develop slowly.
  • They maintain constant luminosity and only turn off when their fuel depletes.
