Storyboard Text

  • Stars are first born in Stellar Nebulas. They are left over from old stars the have already exploded and leave dust and gas everywhere.
  • From there the star ignites, producing heat and light by nuclear fusion within its self. This goes on for many years, depending on its mass.
  • The star then spends most of its life on the main sequence. Using an H-R diagram you can see the brightness and the temperature of the star.
  • As the star gets older and older, it begins to get cooler and bigger, starting to expand and becoming a red giant.
  • When the star runs out of fuel, gravity wins over the star and compresses it so fast that a giant explosion happens. The explosion creates a Stella Nebula where more stars can be made.
  • After the explosion, the only thing left of the star is its core, and depending on the mass of the star, it can become 1 of three things. A white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.
