Supplement the videos with "OpenStax Astronomy"
01: Evolution of Solar Mass Stars
The Sun will live and die. What is its fate and the fate of stars with lower mass than the Sun.
02: The Evolution of High Mass Stars
High mass stars evolve much more rapidly, and their endings are extraordinary. They are responsible for many of the elements that make up your body!
03: Core-Collapse Supernovae
When massive stars die, they go out with a huge bang. They seed the cosmos with their remains. The process by which they die is catastrophic and astonishing.
04: Supernova Remnants
Now we look in detail at the results of the labors of the most massive stars in the cosmos, and some of the most beautiful sights in a telescope. The remnants of supernova explosions.
