For all stars, It starts off with: Nebula > Protostar > Main sequence star (e.g Sun) Then comes the ‘dying’ stages: Small stars- main sequence star > red giant > white dwarf Big stars- Main sequence star > red supergiant > supernova > neutron star Massive stars- Main sequence star > red supergiant > supernova > black hole
