Storyboard Text

  • Our solar system is located in the milky way galaxy, which is about 100,000 light years across. and apart of the Local group of galaxies.
  • We are in a smaller group of galaxies called the Local Group.
  • Which is located in the Virgo supercluster of galaxies.
  • Our solar system is on the outer edge of the milky way. We are located in the Orion arm of the milky way.
  • The Virgo supercluster is around 110 million light years across.
  • Really? That's pretty big! Let's head to the space station before we look at stars!
  • Hey Alex this is our last stop of the tour!
  • It sure is! Now, let's go look at the stars, my favourite part of space!
  • The lifecycle of a star varies on its size, so lets look at how stars form first. Stars form from clouds of gasses and dust, called nebulas. The gas within a nebula is most commonly hydrogen which is the lightest element and will eventually form a photostar.
  • Stars need hydrogen, gravity and time to form.
  • wow, that's facinating
  • Eventually, the protostars heat up and nuclear fusion occurs. The nuclear fusion causes the existing hydrogen to turn into helium and light and heat are released.
  • The larger a star is, the shorter its lifespan will be.
  • Really?
  • Small stars can have up to eight times the mass of the sun and big stars will have more than eight times the mass of the sun.
  • When helium fuses in a star, more energy is is released and the outer layers expand.
  • Let's learn about their cycles!
  • It will turn into a red giant or super giant.
