- The remnant stellar core in the centre is now sending out a flood of ultraviolet light into the surrounding gas.
- Dwarf irregular galaxies are probably fairly old stellar systems whose chemical and physical properties may be the result of the process of slow evolution.
- I researched my vet and found that although one nearby was okay, one only a short distance further had a stellar reputation.
- The Great Pyramid could have functioned as a stellar observatory during its construction.
- It has been used for observations ranging from galaxy structure to stellar evolution.
- After about three years concentrating on a mathematical theory of stellar structure, Milne turned his attention to cosmology.
- Scientists say the data will not only reveal the composition of the sun, but illuminate how our planet could have formed from clouds of stellar dust.
- At each stage, mass is lost, the stellar structure changes, and the star recycles chemical elements into space.
- So many, perhaps most, of these so-called planetary systems may in fact be stellar or brown dwarf binaries.
- If the interior of the Sun were better mixed then it might have a longer lifetime, but things are as they are, and stellar interiors are heavily stratified.

- He has photographed enough stellar nebula, white dwarfs and pinwheel galaxies to fill many a photo album.
- Most theories of stellar evolution portray stars as lone entities or perhaps in a pair with one other star.
- The stars are replaced by a homogenous sea of glowing hot gas with embedded jewels of stellar accretion disks, neutron stars and super nova remnants.
- Astronomers see these processes occurring in other stars and witness outbursts and oscillations in stellar sizes on all sorts of time scales.
- Because planets are so dim compared to stars, technology has not been able to spot them amid stellar glare.
- This synthesis of nuclear physics and stellar astronomy has led us to four significant conclusions.
