Storyboard Text

  • Within molecular clouds, stars begin to form as they accumulate hydrogen and other elements to burn.
  • The H-R Diagram measures the luminosity and the temperature of various stars. Most stars fall on the main sequence which is the majority of a star's life
  • The majority of a star's life is spent turning hydrogen to helium. This produces much energy.
  • After stars burn all of their hydrogen, the core collapses and so much heat is given off that the star expands
  • Once all the available elements have been used, the core collapses very violently even further and the gravitational energy is released in a giant explosion
  • The collapsed core has three options, to become a white dwarf, an energy emitting neutron star, or to keep collapsing until it becomes a single point of gravity known as a black hole.
