There"s a reason why You Who Came from the Stars had fans watching episode while sitting on the edge of their seats every week và peeking out their windows after the show aired, hoping for their own personal alien invasion. With Antoine de Saint-Exupéry"s The Little Prince references woven here và there throughout the story, this drama has everything you could possibly want. It for nothing! Charismatic, believable leads; lãng mạn storyline; & an incredibly evil/creepy villain. ALL the brought their A-game to lớn this one. It was one of those rare gems where they must have all just clicked và it translated khổng lồ the screen. I loved everything about this drama- even the intro scene that shows the passage of time. You can tell that great care went into the making of drama right down khổng lồ the smallest detail. I loved the flash that filled in the I loved the documentary feel when they interviewed the I loved how the second male lead helped move the story forward and wasn"t clueless/innocent & certain aspects. That was refreshing. I especially loved the that Jun Ji Hyun was secure enough as an to lớn really show different aspects of her và let you see the vulnerability và human-ness while still being and exasperating yet sweet và even goofy! I loved the internal/external monologues she would have with herself. I loved how the male lead"s class lectures were tied into that episode"s storyline. I loved his wild jealous imaginings. They"re the most adorable kdrama couple I"ve seen khổng lồ date và the comedic timing on the expressions from the two leads was perfection. The clothing/costumes especially the female lead"s was perfection. Can you tell I have a lot love for this one yet?Seriously though, I"m re-watching this show for the 3rd time now and enjoying it immensely! Even though I know what"s going lớn happen I still have nail biting moments & I"ve noticed very small details that I believe I missed the first two times. It speaks of the universal search for your person or people. The ones who when they"re around you, no matter where you are it becomes home. If you watch it you won"t regret it.

Stars that go supernova are responsible for creating many of the elements of the periodic table, including those that hóa trang the human body.

Planetary scientist & stardust expert Dr Ashley King explains.

"It is totally 100% true: nearly all the elements in the human toàn thân were made in a star và many have come through several supernovas."


The first generation of stars

We think that the universe began 13 or 14 billion years ago, with the Big Bang. At that point only the lightest elements existed, such as hydrogen, helium & minuscule amounts of lithium.

Elements are matter that cannot be broken down into simpler substances. On the periodic table, element is distinguished by its atomic number, which describes the number of protons in the nuclei of its atoms.

The first generation of stars formed as lumps of gas drew together & eventually began lớn combust. This would cause a nuclear in the centre of a star.

The first stars that formed after the Big Bang were greater than 50 times the kích cỡ of our Sun.

"Inside stars a process takes called nucleosynthesis, which is basically the making of elements," Ashley says. "The bigger the star, the faster they burn their fuel."

The first stars burned their fuel quickly and were able lớn make only a few elements heavier than hydrogen và helium. When those stars went supernova - exploded powerfully - & expelled the elements they had produced, they seeded the next generation of stars.

Scientists can tell the temperature và age of stars from their colour. Hotter stars burn blue, while cooler and older stars burn red.


The next generation of seeded stars were then able to lớn produce other, heavier elements such as carbon, magnesium & nearly every element in the periodic table. Any element in your body that is heavier than iron has travelled through at least one supernova.

"So it"s very likely that there are a whole bunch of different stars that have contributed the elements we see in our own solar system, our planet and those found within you."

The life cycle of a star

The burning that takes inside stars draws on a huge amount of fuel and creates an enormous amount of energy.

"Stars are immense objects - over 99% of the mass in our solar system is in our Sun - và gravity squeezes them. Meanwhile, the burning inside a star creates energy which the squeeze of gravity which is why our sun is stable."

Stars stay in this equilibrium with gravity until they run out of fuel.

"When that happens khổng lồ really big stars you can get some really, really supernovas," Ashley says. "Our own Sun won"t be anywhere near as dramatic as that."


When stars die và lose their mass, all the elements that had been generated inside are swept out into Then the next generation of stars form from those elements, burn and are again swept out.

"This constant reprocessing of everything is called chemical evolution," Ashley says. "Every element was made in a star và if you combine those elements in different ways you can make species of gas, minerals, & bigger things like asteroids, và from asteroids you can start making planets và then you start lớn make water & other ingredients required for life & then, eventually, us."

"This process has been going on for something like 13 billion years và our solar system is thought to lớn have formed only 4.5 billion years ago."


Looking in time through

Large stars last for a few million years, while smaller stars more than 10 billion years.

"You can"t really watch a star form và see what happens in real time. When you look at the stars through a telescope what you"re seeing probably happened millions of years ago," Ashley says. "You can tell some things about their make-up based on colour và temperature, but not everything.

"In 1987 there was a supernova that made it possible for scientists khổng lồ watch & record a ring of material being ejected, but this kind of occurrence is rare."
