Dust to dust: the life cycle of stars in our universe

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Natalie Foster – Dust to dust: the life cycle of stars in our universe

Astronomer Carl Sagan said, “We are made of star stuff.” Every living thing on this planet (and the universe!) is composed of the remains of stars that existed before the Earth was formed. Our own star, the Sun, continues to drive the processes that sustain us, such as photosynthesis in plants. Why is the Sun so hot? What happens when stars run out of fuel? When will the Sun reach the end of its life? Let’s discover the answers together!

Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series in Austin, Texas. The talk will be held outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703.
