Stella's Bizarre Life as a
By Toniah Dowers
Hi everyone! I'm Stella and today I'm going to tell you a story about how I became a star.
When I was first born I was a ball of gas and dust in space.
This is called a nebula.
When I was a ball of gas I started to contract. This means a force caused me to spin and shrink. Then I became a protostar.
When pressure increases the temperature increases as well. When I was a protostar I was 10,000,000 degrees celsius which is very hot.
I started a process called nuclear fusion which allowed me to convert hydrogen into helium.
After my fusion process, I stopped growing. I was finally a star. I became balanced and stable thanks to gravity and nuclear fusion.
