Storyboard Text

  • Stars begin their lives by being formed in huge clouds of gas and material called nebulas
  • Gravity will start condensing matter and the matter will heat up. Protostars are formed.
  • The star starts to release energy and becomes a main sequence star on the H-R diagram
  • It remains in the main sequence for billions of years until all of it its fuel gets used. When that happens, the star starts peeling off on the H-R diagram and becomes a red giant
  • The gas and material around the star's core starts to drift away forming a planetary nebula around the remaining core
  • The remaining core is called a white dwarf
