point of light
burning in the night
fusion reactor in space
beginning with hydrogen
Joseph’s Star Poem
PAD May 27, 2012
Stars make the elements. Our sun, for example, shines
because it is fusing hydrogen into helium, and that generates
light. As stars age, nuclear burning stages increase, producing
heavier elements, up to iron. The elements beyond iron, all the way
up to uranium, are then produced when some stars explode as supernovas.
