Storyboard Text

  • Here are the 5 stages of a star forming. 
  • Stage 1: The star starts as a dense cloud of gas and dust that contracts under it's own  gravity.  
  • Stage 2: The gas cloud starts to heat up and glow. Then forms protostars. This takes 10 million years.   
  • Stage 3: The newly formed star starts to produce strong stellar winds. These push away the gas and molecules around it to let the forming star become visible. 
  • Stage 4: If the protostar gains enough matter and it's core temperature reaches 15 million degrees,  then the nuclear reaction will occur where the hydrogen of the star fuse to form helium. 
  • Stage 5: Finally gravity's compression balances with outwards pressures and gives the stars a solid shape. The star begins to release energy stopping it from contracting and causing it to shine.
