https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw-sDmt7PY4 Hosted by Tony Darnell. We know that white dwarf stars are the stellar remnants of the death of a star roughly the size of our Sun.

https://youtu.be/cIcPtF1bN-U I've got some bad news for you. Stars die. At some point in the next few billion years or so our Sun is going to start heating up, using up all the fuel in its core, and then eventually die, becoming a white dwarf. It'll then slowly cool down to the background temperature of the Universe, becoming a black dwarf. Let's l…
