Evolution of StarsSpace Art WeekEvolution of Stars by ErikShoemaker
This article is meant to give only a short overview and is in no way intended to be comprehensive or overly detailed. The main purpose of this article is to give readers a general idea what is happening in the lifetime of a star, so they can understand what crazy things space artists are actually drawing all the time. In fact, I left out a few minor, or too specific stages of the evolution to make it less confusing (e.g., brown/red/black dwarfs).
The pictures shown are artist interpretations, therefore not always physically accurate and neither intended to be.
What are stars?
Stars are spheres of plasma held together by their own gravity. They form during the gravitational collapse of gas clouds, also called nebulae. Gravitation pulls the central mass together which becomes increasingly hot and dense, starting nuclear fusions in its core. These nuclear reactions create heat and help sustain life in our solar system.
