Protostar Formation – Infographic
Took me a while to do that. I hope that you like what I did. In some respects, I am not happy. I wanted to fit much, much more info. But I saw very soon that that was not going to … Continue reading
Stellar Modelling
Stellar Models require: The fundamental stellar structure equations (FSSE) The constitutive relations (CR): “equations of state” describing the physical properties of the matter of the star. If the structure of the star is changing, the influence of gravitational energy must … Continue reading

Hydrostatic Equilibrium
The internal structure of stars cannot be directly observed (an exception is neutrino emission from the stellar core, since neutrinos have a hard time interacting with… anything else, they are not blocked by the upper layers of the stellar body), … Continue reading
