Can Stars Become Planets?
To the professional astronomers, the stars are part of a huge natural laboratory- one of enormous extremes. Light years away, in the heart of the cosmos, stars provide a test bed to theories and observations on behavior of matter, which cannot be comprehended through on- ground observations. Our star, The Sun ,is no exception. It is halfway through its 10 billion lifespan, and it too will fade away. There is still a lot of research ongoing as we speak about stars and fates of stars. Are all stars similar? Do all of them have the same, or seemingly same fate? What happens to stars when they die?
In today’s video, we are going to discuss a rather uncommon fate that some stars meet. Can Stars become planets? Before we move on to this unusual topic, let’s discuss more about stars and planets. If you haven’t already watched our detailed video about stars, or how do stars die, make sure to watch it till the end to completely comprehend this topic. Let’s have a recap about planets, stars, and the fate of stars.
Before the space revolution, planets were hardly more than dots in the sky which revealed blurred details when seen through a telescope.Now,thanks to surveys by diligent space probes, planets are real “new worlds” with mountains , valleys , volcanoes , ring systems , and vast entourages of moons. The temperature of the surface of planets can vary depending on its location from a star. Planets are formed around newly formed stars when gasses and tiny particles come together, spinning under the influence of their own gravity. The large planets further undergo more collisions , throwing debris in space further forming more planets.
