The Red Giant
by Cameron Perry Smith
The Life of a Red Giant
This is when i was born, i was a baby star they called me nebula.
Before i was a giant i was a cloud of dust in space.
Once I got older i started to get smaller and heavier.
I kept spinning until i had a star in my center.
I gained a protostar.
The star in my center kept building pressure and i kept getting hotter.
I got so hot that i started to fuse.
Once I started fusing I felt amazing
at this point I'm 18,000,032 degrees Fahrenheit
I finally made it to my main sequence. I'm an adult star.
I'm the same age as the sun
I'll be this way for a billion years.
As I get older and older i get bigger and brighter, this happens for a very long time.
This happens because the hydrogen in me is coming out, after a long time I'll pop.
