Transcript of The Alcyone Star

Why are learning about stars important? -This is important because stars are
the second threshold of the
universe without stars nothing of what there is today would have been created.
-Big History lets you understand this because it teaches you the history of the universe in a different way; in more of a broad spectrum. Pleiades -The name of Alcyone cluster is Pleiades.
-Pleiades consists of mainly stars just like Alcyone; which are middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. Background Information Type of Star: B-Type Giant

Alcyone: A Biography Taurus -Taurus is the the constellation in which Pleiades is located, so really it is a giant constellation of star clusters.
