Star Life

Storyboard Text

  • Clouds of dust and gas are pulled together from gravity, this causes the temperature in the star to increase and begin to burn hydrogen
  • Gravity
  • Hot temperatures and high pressure causes hydrogen atoms to fuse together and make helium, this is nuclear fusion. this pushes out from the star while gravity pushes in.
  • Nuclear Fusion
  • As hydrogen atoms run out, helium atoms bind together and make heavier elements like nitrogen, carbon, and oxygen
  • Heavier elements are created until iron is produced. To much iron causes for the core of the star to collapse and expand into a red supergiant.
  • when the red supergiant runs out of fuel it collapse and explodes which becomes a supernova. The energy released from the supernova re-starts nuclear fusion which makes all of the heavy elements
  • since this star was very massive it became a black hole after the supernova
