Storyboard Text

  • I was like him once before. 
  • I am not a star yet, but some day I dream to be the biggest star in the universe!!
  • I am now a young protostar. Technically a star. Yes!
  • I'm growing!
  • Hello! I am Marph McFluffel, a Massive  Star  in the  Stellar  Nebula stage. Right now, I am a cloud of dust and gas in the center of space. Once I achieve equilibrium between gravity I will be able to become a young protostar.
  • All of my dreams have come true! I am the biggest star in the universe!!
  • I have finally achieved equilibrium between gravity, and am no longer in the previous Stellar Nebula stage, I have become a young protostar. I am a very hot ball of gas. My core is continuing to shrink, and continuing to  build heat and  pressure. When my core becomes hot enough there will be enough pressure for nuclear fusion to begin .
  • Ahhh! My parts are flying through space!!
  • Nuclear fusion has began, and I  am no longer a protostar, have now finally become a Massive Star!  My formation is  still a mystery to astronomers, but I produce heavy metals that help regulate acretion rates of normal stars.  I can't wait to  see what comes next in my life cycle. 
  • For now, I am a neutron star, ready to take on what ever the future now holds.
  • I am now a Red Super-giant, Initially larger than the Red Giant, and the biggest star in the universe.  I am 1, 000, 000 times larger than  the sun, and I have a short life cycle. I usually form into this stage at the end if my life span, I hope in not coming to a end any time soon!
  • I am no longer  a  Red Super-giant,  Eventually, I  have lost my all of my fuel that keeps me stable.  This has resulted in me violently exploding  throughout  the universe,  a stage called a Supernova. From here  I can  become a black hole, or  a neutron star. Lets see what happens!
  • Alas, fate has chosen that  I have proceeded to become a  Neutron Star.  I am composed of mainly neutrons, from when  my  Supernova exploded, ejecting particles into space. I am very dense, and if my mass becomes any greater I will become a Black Hole.
