Transcript of Betelgeuse

By: Christopher J Ingledue Betelgeuse How The Star Was Formed How Long Will It Live? How will Betelgeuse Die? Betelgeuse Life Cycle The star Betelgeuse was spawned in the Big Bang. Its the first generation star. It actually gave birth to some, not all, of the stars in the Orion Spur in which we reside. Betelgeuse is expected to die within the next few Hundred years. In fact some experts say that it could already be dead for the light resulting supernova could still be transit. It would take 640 years for the light to hit us here on Earth. They say someday betelgeuse will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. Betelgeuse is though to be 3500 degrees Celsius or 6332 degrees Fahrenheit. BETELGEUSE bdaugherty.tripod.com Time Line of Betelgeuse 1- Gas can float around for a Million years then it will collapse
2- The star enters the protostar phase which lasts about 100,000 years
3- It will then go into the main sequence stage for 10-15 billion years
4- Then it becomes a Red Giant for 1,000 or so years
5- Then betelgeuse will become supernova and explode
6- It's ending stage will be a white dwarf Betelgeuse Life Cycle compared to Human Life Cycle As of each star and each baby born human everything comes together to become a new born. They both are born but in completely different ways. Stars and humans both grow up little by little going through each stage of its own life cycle. Both can either live long or die relatively young. Stars go through stages transforming into different types of stars. Humans also transform from baby, kid, teen, adult, to old age to where eventually we die. Humans and stars both in the end die out. Everything in this world has a beginning, middle and an end. It's part of life. Thats why it's called the life cycle.
