  • By Jasmine Terry
  • I can show you the...universe! Join me as we take a closer look into my life cycle, the life cycle of a High-Mass star!
  • Also know as the birth place of a star.
  • This is a Nebula. An interstellar cloud of gas and dust.
  • A Protostar is the result of gravity pulling together the available helium and hydrogen gas available in it's nebula. 
  • This gas spins so quickly that it burns the hydrogen in its core, leaving only helium behind. This is the beginning of our  life cycle.
  • Fun Fact: Our sun is in this stage right now!!
  • Nuclear Fusion then occurs in the stars core. It stabilizes and becomes a Main Sequence Star. It will remain in this stage for millions of years.
  • The core then collapses in on itself, in an explosion known as a Supernova.
  • If the core survives, the star either becomes a Neutron Star or a Black Hole. Thus, the life cycle reaches completion!!
