"Times New Roman"">Once the nuclear fusion in a star ends, all of its elements end up as iron. The reason that it doesn’t keep fusing elements is because iron doesn’t fuse. Once all of it is iron, it releases a huge amount of energy in what is called a supernova. The energy is released when the star blows of its outer layers. The remains of the core will be one of two things - a neutron star or a black hole. The closest possible supernova is 150 light years away and if it blows up, its radiation will most likely wipe us (Earth) out because a “safe” distance for something like this is 160-200 light years away.

Hello! I’m David. I really love rock music and rap music. My favorite artists are Eminem, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns and roses, Bon Jovi, and more. I really enjoy playing sports! I may not be the most athletic or agile person but I still enjoy playing for fun. My favorite basketball team is the Chicago Bulls. My favorite food is lamb chops, especially when they’re made by my dad. My best friend is my cousin who lives in New Jersey. He’s my age and I love to spend time with him. On my free time either play guitar or skateboard.
