Our lives are intimately linked to the stars, but in ways much more down to earth than the romantic views of them. As we all know, our sun is a star and the thermonuclear reactions that are continuously taking place inside it are what provide and sustain life on our planet. What do we get from the sun? We get carbon, oxygen, calcium and iron, courtesy of stars that disappeared billions of years ago (Naeye, 1998). Star formation is a study in contradictions because the formation of a star begins with atoms and molecules floating freely through space that are brought together through gravity to form masses that become stars.

STARS A star is a large celestial body composed of gravitationally contained hot gases giving off electromagnetic radiation, especially light. The sun is actually a star. Unlike the sun the stars seem to be fixed, but in fact stars are in rapid motion, but their distances are so great no relative changes can be seen with the naked eye. The sun is a typically star, with a visible surface called a photosphere, which an atmosphere of hot gases, and above them an outflowing stream of particles called the solar (stellar) winds. Cooler spots called sunspots are likely present on other stars. We come to know this by a technique called speckle interferometry. Internal structures of the sun and other ...
