Life Cycle of Stars

What happens to a star when it dies? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you all the secrets of the stars--how they form, how long they live, and what happens when they die. In particular, you’ll discover what will happen to our star, the sun, when it’s ready to expire--we’d better have another place to live at that point, because things on Earth might get a bit toasty! You’ll learn why some stars just peter out and die quietly, while others go out in a huge blaze of glory--and others still collapse so rapidly on themselves that they turn into black holes!
