Stars are the crucibles in which almost all elements heavier than hydrogen and helium are formed. If it were not for their deaths, these elements would never be released into the galaxy. Our own Sun formed from a gas cloud that was infused with trave amounts of these elements which later formed into planets and people. We are star stuff. We are made of the same material shorn in these beautiful ribbons of color which are the result of the dramatic death of a star through a supernova explosion.
