M assive stars distinguish themselves from their lower mass cousins by their eventual fate. Their subsequent evolution may lead to an explosion in the form of a core-collapse supernova, a long duration gamma-ray burst GRB or direct collapse to a black hole. But our physical understanding of transients remains rather patchy, and is reliant upon the far less glamorous field of stellar astrophysics.

Stellar evolution is the process by which a star changes over the course of time. Depending on the mass of the star, its lifetime can range from a few million years for the most massive to trillions of years for the least massive, which is considerably longer than the age of the universe. The table shows the lifetimes of stars as a function of their masses. Over the course of millions of years, these protostars settle down into a state of equilibrium, becoming what is known as a main-sequence star.

Birth, life and death of a star

In Grades 6 and 8 learners covered material regarding the solar system including the Sun. In Grade 7, they focused on the system which includes the Sun, Earth and Moon. Learners should be familiar with the fact that the Sun is a star and produces heat and light energy via nuclear reactions. In this chapter the focus is on the life cycle of stars, including how they are born and die. The exact evolution that a star follows depends on the initial mass of the star. The Sun's evolution is presented as an example.

A star is an astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun. Many other stars are visible to the naked eye at night , but due to their immense distance from Earth they appear as fixed points of light in the sky. The most prominent stars are grouped into constellations and asterisms , and many of the brightest stars have proper names. Astronomers have assembled star catalogues that identify the known stars and provide standardized stellar designations. The observable universe contains an estimated 10 22 to 10 24 stars, but most are invisible to the naked eye from Earth, including all individual stars outside our galaxy , the Milky Way.

Radio astronomy has helped astronomers explore the life stories of stars, and here is what we have learned so far. The color of a star is an indicator of its temperature. The cooler stars are brown to dark red, barely warmed enough to glow, like the cooling embers in a fire. The nearest star we can study is our Sun. It is a very average star, which means that galaxies in the Universe contain smaller and larger, brighter and dimmer, and hotter and cooler stars than our Sun. The Sun and the bulk of the stars in the Universe are called dwarf stars.

Kaler, James B. Last reviewed: March The large-scale, systematic, and irreversible changes over time of the structure and composition of a star over time. All stars have "lives" in the sense that they are born, age, and die. A stellar "death," or end stage of evolution, ranges from an eons-long smolder as a white dwarf for typical stars, to explosive self-destruction as a supernova for massive stars. The initial mass of a star is the overwhelmingly determinative property of the evolutionary path that the star will follow Fig. See also: Star.

Беккер не раздумывая просунул ногу в щель и открыл дверь. Но сразу же об этом пожалел. Глаза немца расширились. - Was tust du. Что вы делаете.

Встав, Сьюзан решительно направилась подошла к терминалу Хейла. Экран монитора был погашен, но она понимала, что он не заперт: по краям экрана было видно свечение. Криптографы редко запирали свои компьютеры, разве что покидая Третий узел на ночь.

 Новая диагностика. Что-нибудь из Отдела обеспечения системной безопасности. Стратмор покачал головой: - Это внешний файл.

 - Если бы ты не нашел черный ход в Попрыгунчике, мы могли бы взломать любой шифр, вместо того чтобы полагаться на ТРАНСТЕКСТ. - Если бы я не нашел черный ход, - сказал Хейл, - это сделал бы кто-то. Я спас вас, сделав это заранее. Можешь представить себе последствия, если бы это обнаружилось, когда Попрыгунчик был бы уже внедрен. - Так или иначе, - парировала Сьюзан, - теперь мы имеем параноиков из Фонда электронных границ, уверенных, что черный ход есть во всех наших алгоритмах. - А это не так? - язвительно заметил Хейл.

 Когда вы отдали ей кольцо. Росио пожала плечами. - Сегодня днем. Примерно через час после того, как его получила. Беккер посмотрел на часы - 11.

 Я возьму на себя лабораторию систем безопасности, - сказал Стратмор.

Она совсем. - Вот и прекрасно. Мистер Густафсон остановился. Наверное, он сейчас у. - Понимаю.

 Ты ничего не понимаешь! - кричал Хейл.
