Extreme Stars

Today on Far Future Horizons we explore the fascinating story of the birth of stars and how their creation changed the cosmos forever, eventually leading to planets, life and, at least in our nook of the universe, the emergence of sentience itself.

If we could watch the night sky over a period of millions of years, we would witness the stars undergo an astonishing sequence of transformations. 

Thanks to a new generation of telescopes we can follow the unfolding life story of a star from the moment of its first gestation as a protostellar object forming in a majestic cosmic nebula, through to the moment of birth.
