Making a star

Simulation of star formation by collapse of molecular clouds (2008). The calculation models the collapse and fragmentation of a molecular cloud with a mass 50 times that of our Sun. The cloud is initially 1.2 light-years (9.5 million million kilometres) in diameter, with a temperature of 10 Kelvin (-263 degrees Celsius).

My book of love poems


Each page, carefully recorded, in red ink, a song from my heart, destined for her.
