STANLEY THE STAR'S LIFE ESS Period 1/2

Book By Derek J Carrier


Chapter 1: The Big Bang

Before I was born, there was nothing. Until suddenly the nothingness expanded into the universe, leaving off a bunch of energy. This expansion caused the new universe to cool off, which caused particles called protons to combine and create two elements: Hydrogen and helium. Elements are a type of matter with a specific amount of protons that cannot be broken down. These two elements, Hydrogen and Helium, were the beginnings of the universe. .


The 3 Pieces of Evidence for the Universe's Formation. HUBBLE'S LAW CMB

CMB is microwave radiation throughout the universe, and it is roughly as old as scientists predict the universe is.

A law that states that galaxies expand and move away from eachother, and the velocity that they recede is proportional to their distance.

AMOUNT OF HYDROGEN AND HELIUM

The amount of Hydrogen and Helium is almost the exact same amount that The Big Bang Theory states there should be.


CHAPTER 2: MY BIRTH AS A STAR AND THE PROCESS OF FUSION. One of the beginning atoms: Hydrogen, formed great big space clouds in the early universe soon all of these Hydrogen atoms began to fuse...and I was born along with many other stars. The universe was now full of light. But none of this would've been possible without nuclear fusion. Nuclear fusion is when the particles in an atom's nucleus fuse to make a heavier nucleus and a different atom. The energy released by this: Gamma radiation, is my source of energy and fuel.


CHAPTER 3: THE REST OF MY LIFE AND HOW STARS WORK As stars like me were born, there was one key factor as to what their life would be like: Mass. The mass of a star helps determine how it will change over the course of its life. Average size stars will live for many years before turning into red giants. Stars turn into red giants when the lack of hydrogen within them as well as light pressure makes their outer layers expand, forming red giant stars. Stars with larger masses will become red supergiant stars the same way regular sized stars become red giants, when hydrogen within their core is low. Eventually stars like this will go supernova and release large amounts of energy and neutrons, causing the iron within it to fuse into larger elements such as gold and uranium. .


CHAPTER 4: THE COMPOSITION OF STARS AND OTHER SPACE OBJECTS

When humans try to look at stars like me they use a variety of instruments. Objects in space like stars and planets give off a light level specific to that object, and astronomers use a tool called a Spectroscope to discover the composition of these objects via their frequency and wavelength..
