Fact of the Day: Star Life

The age and life of a star can vary generally by how big the star is. Smaller stars live longer because larger stars use more of its own energy. A star the size of the Sun can live for about 10 billion years or so.

  8. 10 billions year, then we're ok!
    When I was a child I had an illustrated book with stickers about science and history (plus other subjects) and I still remember as it would be yesterday the stickers with the life and end steps of our star. The idea was creepy in my opinion... I was so scared about it!
    Have a nice Sunday!
