  • 7. How Stars Are Born<br />Star are formed from giant clouds of dust and gas.<br />Then, from gravity, the cloud collapses into a rotating gaseous ball.<br />Once the new star gets hot enough it will begin to create energy from a process called nuclear fission.<br />This created energy allows the star to glow for billions of years. <br />
