What is a Star? How is a Star born? Have you ever wondered what happens to the different stars in the night sky as they get older?

In the vastness of interstellar space are numerous ethereal clouds of gas and dust, the unearthly remains of dead and dying stars and the raw materials from which a new generations of stars and planets will be born.

Named after the Latin word for “cloud”, nebulae are not only massive clouds of dust, hydrogen and helium gas, and plasma; they are also often “stellar nurseries” – i.e. the place where stars are born. And for centuries, distant galaxies were often mistaken for these massive clouds. Carl Sagan once said, “The Cosmos is in us: we’re made of starstuff”. "The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it but the way those atoms are put together The Cosmos is in us: we're made of starstuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself."
