stars live out most of their lives in this phase. Stars radiate shine energy into space.
low mass stars in main sequence
low luminosity, long lived, small radius, red
A star that expands and cools once it runs out of hydrogen fuel
Occurs at the end of a low mass red giant's life; the core is very hot and luminous
forms when a low mass star runs out of fuel; final stage in the cycle of a low mass star
Star that results when a white dwarf stops giving off energy
high mass stars in main sequence
high luminosity, short lived, large radius, blue
forms when the star runs out of nuclear fuel, some of its mass flows to its core. The core becomes so heavy with its gravitational force that the core core collapses and causes a giant explosion.
the small, dense remains of a high-mass star after a supernova
a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape.
