What is a star and how does it produce light? What types of stars are there and do they all go supernova? This class will introduce you to the variety of stars out there, from white dwarves to red giants, and G-type stars, like our Sun, to recently discovered brown dwarf stars that are changing our thoughts on what a star even is. You will learn about the stages in the lives of stars, from birth in a cluster out of a stellar nursery, to death in one of many possible forms.
