Star | Definition, Light, Names, & Facts

Star, any massive self-luminous celestial body of gas that shines by radiation derived from its internal energy sources. This article describes the properties and evolution of individual stars. Included in the discussion are the sizes, energetics, temperatures, masses, and chemical compositions of stars.

Stars in the two galaxies, cataloged as NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, very rarely collide in the course of the ponderous cataclysm that lasts for hundreds of millions of years.

Life cycle of a star

Learn how stars are born from clouds of dust and gas, how they release energy by nuclear fusion, and how they change and die depending on their mass. Discover the different stages of the life cycle of a star with this KS3 science physics webpage on the topic of the life cycle of a star.

Located 60 million light years away, they have been merging for a billion years, triggering star formation through colliding interstellar gases.   Their iconic antennae structures and cosmic dance are expected to continue for another billion years."
