After billions of years it will again change its appearance. However, these changes are imperceptible to the human scale of time. Nevertheless, the Sun has its own life cycle – from the formation of clouds of interstellar matter, then a period of more or less peaceful existence, and then certain death.

Unlike wood burning is the longer, more combustible substance, with stars is reversed. The more they have, the shorter the period during which they reach the final stage, ie the phase when fully exhausted its sources of energy. Read the rest of this entry »
