    Stellar evolution is the life cycle of a star. A cycle suggests that upon death of a star, another star is born. How is this possible? Stars never really die. The death is a black dwarf star. This type of death triggers the birth

    Newton’s version of Kepler’s third law is P^2 = 4pi^2/(G(M_1+M_2)) a^3. Since the square of the period P varies inversely with the sum of the masses (M_1 + M_2), the period itself depends on the inverse square root of the

    Black Holes are suspected when a visible star is being noticeably pulled by an invisible partner that is more than 3 times as massive as the Sun. A red giant star is accelerated in a linear direction by gravity at 0.075 m/s2
