    As the philosopher once said, variety is the spice of life! The star-stories are in turn followed by listings by standard and alternative names, by order of evolution, and by position on the sky. Our sun and all the stars we can see with the naked eye belong to just one galaxy - the Milky Way. However, stars of different masses have markedly different properties at various stages of their development.

    Celestial Circles; 5. Our Milky Way, for instance, is in the Local Groupa galaxy group about 10 million light-years across that also includes the Andromeda galaxy and its satellites. Eventually, white dwarfs fade into black dwarfs over a very long period of time. It is updated to label Pluto and others as dwarf planets. Some of those distant systems are similar to our own Milky Way galaxy, while others are quite different. Journeys on the HR Diagram.

    The name is from the Greek word galaxias, literally meaning "milky", a reference to the Milky Way galaxy. Ganging Up; 6. Their stars orbit the galactic center, like those in the disks of spiral galaxies, but they do so in more random directions. There is also a forward, table of contents, several interesting time lines, glossary, index and additional reading and web sites. The star then follows an evolutionary path called the asymptotic giant branch AGB that parallels the other described red giant phase, but with a higher luminosity.

Irregular galaxies—such as the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds that flank our Milky Way—appear misshapen and lack a distinct form, often because they are within the gravitational influence of other galaxies close by.

The Cambridge Encylopedia of Starswith over illustrations, is a Stars and galaxies book book that provides a comprehensive description of stars and their natures.

Because elliptical galaxies contain older stars and less gas than spiral galaxies, it seems that the galaxy types represent part of a natural evolution: As spiral galaxies age, interact, and merge, they lose their familiar shapes and become elliptical galaxies.

Rising and Setting; 6. By letting astronomers peer into the universe's farthest reaches—and earliest moments—instruments such as NASA's James Webb Space Telescope should help resolve lingering questions. Accordingly, astronomers often group stars by their mass: [63] Very low mass stars, with masses below 0.

Hidden in its centre is a massive black hole. Singular Sights; Our Milky Way, for instance, is in the Local Groupa galaxy group about 10 million light-years across that also includes the Andromeda galaxy and its satellites.

Galaxy origins The universe's first stars ignited some million years after the big bang, the explosive moment Catastrophe; This image uses data from three of NASA's observatories: the Chandra X-ray image is shown in blue, the Hubble Space Telescope optical image is in red and yellow, and the Spitzer Space Telescope's infrared image is in purple.

For more massive stars, helium core fusion starts before the core becomes degenerate, and the star spends some time in the red clumpslowly burning helium, before the outer convective envelope collapses and the star then moves to the horizontal branch.

Elliptical galaxies contain many older stars, but little dust and other interstellar matter. Constellations; 3. Journeys on the HR Diagram. Translated into Dutch. Jacket drawing: Constellations of the northern hemisphere, adapted from a woodblock print by Albrecht Durer; Jacket photograph: star trails around the south pole, Gregory G.

Billions of Stars; 5. Almost all naturally occurring elements heavier than helium were created by stars, either via stellar nucleosynthesis during their lifetimes or by supernova nucleosynthesis when stars explode. The most massive stars last an average of a few million years, while stars of minimum mass red dwarfs burn their fuel very slowly and can last tens to hundreds of billions of years.

Well illustrated with photographs and artistic conceptions of astronomical objects. Beyond this lie billions of galaxies stretching as far into space as astronomers can see. Star Clusters and Associations; Eventually, white dwarfs fade into black dwarfs over a very long period of time.
