I think the astronomy topic rotates back to stellar evolution next year.

That would be awesome, but I think there will be another year of galaxies first....

I've heard rumors of both so I guess we won't find out which is true until the official rules come out...gah...I wish we didn't have to wait so long... :cry:

I would love stellar evolution... but I would love another year with galaxies too! :lol:

Stellar evolution would be cool, but in my opinion there's not as much you can do with stellar evolution rather than galaxies.

JCicc, what school are you from? I notice you have PA C listed in your profile. :)
East Stroudsburg South Class of 2012, Alumnus of JT Lambert, Drexel University Class of 2017

By that I think he meant middle-earth.

Astronomy, Remote Sensing (Both Mars and Global Warming), Dynamic Planet (Oceanography/Earthquakes and Volcanoes), It's About Time, Technical Problem Solving, and I really don't want to count, but did fail at-Fermi Questions.

I think that red dwarves, after proficently burning hydrogen for billions of years, slowly collapse into black dwarfs.
Sun-like stars become red giants, and fluctuate greatly in temperature and brightness. Then they collapse into white dwarves.
Large stars become red supergiants, which vary even more than red giants. Then they explode as supernovae. If the core of the star is about 1.4 to 3.2 times the mass of the sun, it becomes a neutron star. If the core is more than 3.2 solar masses, it collapses into a black hole.

Have I got this right?

Nothing there seems out of place off the top of my head.
Also, be sure to know what's being burned (and where) in a star during those various stages of its life.

Ok. And I have this huge space book that has info on every planets and some satellites. It has info on stars, nebulas, supernova remnants, galaxies, and other cosmology. The only downfall is that it is really bulky. I forgot the title.
