S: My Life As a Star

FC: My Life As a Star! By Tess Ansbro

1: To my sister Maya. You are a shining star.

2: My name is Maya the star. On April 14th I started my life as gas and dust. Then gravity pulled me together as a big hot ball. As I became denser, I got hotter and hotter. When I was warming up the hydrogen in me changed into helium in a process called nuclear fusion. I think that I am the brightest star in the universe.

3: I am now getting older. I am in my second and longest stage of life. I am a big star now and nobody can boss me around. I can and I am generating energy in my core. Other stars tell me that as I make energy, hydrogen is being fused into helium. They also say that I am not going to change. As long as I have a supply of hydrogen I will stay the way I am. I hope I don't run out because there definitely is not a supermarket around here.

4: After a long time I became a supergiant. I am 100 times bigger than the famous star, the sun. And that is just at the very least. Thank goodness that I did not become a red giant. I would have only been 10 times bigger than the sun. It would have been so unfair. The loss of hydrogen I had in me caused my core to shrink. It also caused me to cool down and my atmosphere to expand. After a while I will start to get smaller.

5: Am dying now—I am very bummed that I was never a supernova and exploded in a big boom. The problem is that I was not hot or big enough. My outer layers have shed and I am just the size of earth. I am very condensed and I am not as hot as a used to be. You know that a star usually lives billions of years before they end up like me.

6: Resources. Astronomy book

7: I think that my life was wonderful. I think that My life as a star was wonderful I am amazing.
