Stars & Stellar Evolution

  1. Aug 29, 2006 #1
    Hey, would anyone be able to tell me quality websites/ or help to answer the following questions:
    1. What is a star?
    2. How Astronomers can tell the difference between different stellar objects?
    3. What powers a star?
    4. The evelotionary path of a star and it's different stages.
    5. Why Stars move though this evolutionary cycle and why the cycle is altered for stars of different mass?

    Thanks for your help Nath

    There's lots of good websites, nath. Do a google search on "Stellar Evolution" and you see things like this from Nasa.
