SCIENCE
Asked by Liam

What are the stages of the death of a star? Are they different for different types of stars?

If a star has a great amount of mass, it explodes as a supernova and most likely into a black hole. If it's not massive enough, it will likely form a neutron star or a white dwarf.

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
