The Sun and StarsStreaming Video - 2006
This video looks deep into space to learn how stars are born and how, eventually, they die. Each stage is covered: the formation of proto-stars, the nuclear ignition of main sequence stars, the cooling of red giants, the compaction of white dwarfs, and the final drama: death by burnout as a black dwarf or by supernova. Special attention is given to the Sun-its effect on the Earth, its projected life span, and its various levels, from corona to core, and their characteristics-as well as to spectrographic analysis of starlight and star classification with the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
