The Life Cycle of Stars
In this Teaching Astronomy and Space video, produced by the Institute of Physics, Teachers TV and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), astronomer Tim O'Brien, from Jodrell Bank Observatory, explains how astronomers believe a star is born, lives and dies. Tim compares the life of stars like our Sun with much more massive stars, which can end their lives by creating supernovae, neutron stars and even black holes.
