The Life Cycle Of A High Mass Star
This storyboard does not have a description.

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!!
