Storyboard Text

  • A star is born from a giant cloud of dust and gas, like what you see here,  we call this the nebula
  • A protostar is then formed over a period of time. This is formed because gravity pulls the gas together, making it spin and heat up.
  • Soon enough the cloud starts to become stable and starts to glow bright. At this point it is now a star and will stay here for millions to billions of years.
  • Once the star begins to run out of energy and stop generating heat it becomes unstable and begins to expand, cool down and glow red, turning into a red giant. The helium core then turns into carbon.
  • A star's life cycle is determined by its mass. For low-mass stars after the helium turns to carbon from the red giant, the core then collapses again, and the outer layers go away.
  • The core then becomes a white dwarf and soon cools becoming a black dwarf
