Stars dot the night sky, and fill our galaxy. But how much do we actually know about stars? Where did they come from? Are there different types? What will happen to them eventually? This will be a short series of videos, covering the life cycle of stars, starting today with their formation, the next episode will be the main sequence of stars, and the last episode will be what happens to stars when they die.
