FC: The Life of Hercules (V509 Cassiopeiae) By: Bryan Wu

1: Background information: V509 Cassiopeiae is a massive hypergiant that has a diameter that is more than 400 times that of the sun. It also has a mass of 25 times that of the sun. Hercules was a hero in Greek mythology that did the 12 labors of Hercules. He was the son of Zeus and Alcmene. Hera, Zeus's wife, was jealous of Alcmene, so she did many evil things to Hercules.

2: Hercules (V509 Cassiopeiae) was in his mother's womb for a million years. Hercules's parents were Zeus and the mortal Alcmene. In his nebula state, He wandered and expanded, until he started collapsing into a ball because of gravity. Hercules assaulted two evil iron snakes sent by the jealous Hera. | Nebula

3: Battling the evil snakes of iron, Hercules strangles them to death. (Hercules was known to do miraculous and incredulous things.) Hercules's fame rose though he was only an infant. | Protostar

4: Glowing brighter and brighter, the yellow hypergiant is in its main sequence years. This time a new monster appears; one that is called gravity. Becoming more handsome and attractive, Hercules finds his wife, the daughter of the King Creon, Megara. | Main Sequence

5: V509 Cassiopeiae turns larger and begins to use helium to fuel itself. Hercules tries to fuse using the helium and destroy the gravity, but the gravity is like none other because it has no end to its power. Hercules then overuses his energy in an epic battle to attempt to slay gravity and nearly bankrupts his helium energy. | Yellow Hypergiant | Gravity

6: Now, the energy that Hercules once had in his youth is almost gone. Hercules is planning to use his last bit of energy to destroy gravity. This blow will create a large explosion and result in a black hole. | Supernova

7: Black Hole | After the explosion, the V509 Cassiopeiae condenses with a gravity so strong that it creates a ripple in space. Unfortunately, gravity was NOT defeated and instead it swallowed Hercules and began inhaling other things, too. | Gravity

8: Conclusion | What did this project teach you about stars that you already know? A. I learned that a star with 8 or more times the mass of the sun will become a supergiant. I also learned that iron is deadly to a star. What did you like about creating a mixbook? B. I liked using computers in class to create the mixbook. Also, I appreciated the new experience in using When would you do this again? I would use this again if I want to ever make a scrapbook.
