When we die, it usually takes about 80 years.
When stars die, it usually takes them about trillions of years.
This is what they look like when they are dying
Through a really powerful and intense telescope.
In fact, the light you see from stars now, is probably the light from thousands of years ago.
So technically, you can never tell if a star is dead or not
Not by using your naked eye you can't
But with a really awesome telescope
You can see the universe through a small lens
Technically a really big lens
Almost makes you think...
How infintesimally small we are
And how infinitesimally large the universe is
See! How cool is this!
