FC: The Life of Vega Star

1: Vega is one of the hottest and brightest stars in the universe. Vega has a blue/white glow, which makes him look 10X better than the Sun. Vega is also famous and popular in this universe. Plus the brightest out of his class. AND the fifth brightest star in the sky! Vega is also called the "Harp Star" for its brilliance and amazing blue-white color.

2: Vega, just like other stars, was born in the Nebula. In December 1989, Vega's mother gave birth to the best star ever. | Protostar | Nebula

3: Name of Star: Vega Color(Race): Blue-White Surface Temperature: 11,300 Kelvin Absolute Magnitude: .65 (brightest star in its class (Lyra) Luminosity: 50 Type/Class: AOVa Average Radius: 2.5 (Pretty Big!) Elements- Helium, Hydrogen

4: Main Sequence | Vega's current stage is the main sequence. Where he is starting to grow older into a teen/ young adult. He's starting to grow strong, brilliant and project more of that amazing blue-white color. (forming helium deep in interiors) | The process of hydrogen fusion begins taking place in its core. Fusion produces enough radiation pressure to counteract the force of gravity; there for gravitational collapse ceases. The protostar has become an actual star in its main sequence phase.

6: This is when Vega this stage in Vegas life would be considered middle-age. When Vega's core runs out of hydrogen, gravity has its way once more--that is, until temperatures rise high enough to allow helium fusion, which produces the outward pressure needed to stabilize things. When no helium is left, the cycle begins again.Vega is starting to get gray hair, some wrinkles. He also starts to get weaker, Vega is trying to maintain equilibrium. Hes headed to being a white dwarf. | Red Giant

7: The inward force of the star is pushing out lots of energy helping the star maintain its equilibrium. The outward force of the star is gravity pushing on it to help it maintain its shape.

8: H-R Diagram | The Hertzsprung-Russel diagram makes it easier to see the relationship between stars. The H-R diagram plots a stars average surface temperature and its brightness. H-R Diagram allows the age and evolutionary state of a star to be determined.

10: Vega is an elder at this point. About to pass away. Vega could've caught a disease and died(core is crushed-by gravity) | White Dwarf

11: This is when Vega is dead and he has Stellar Remnants, gas and dust (ashes). | Black Dwarf

12: Mass is important to a stars final fate because stars with more mass burn at much higher temperatures, using their available fuel at a faster rate. Stars with low mass are very efficient in the way that they burn their nuclear fuel, and there for live much longer. | Why Mass is important
