A star is born when atoms of light elements are squeezed under enough pressure for their nuclei to undergo fusion. All stars are the result of a balance of forces: the force of gravity compresses atoms in interstellar gas until the fusion reactions begin. And once the fusion reactions begin, they exert an outward pressure. As long as the inward force of gravity and the outward force generated by the fusion reactions are equal, the star remains stable.

Yes. Sometime all you need to do is stare into the void… http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap100512.html and Yes. Sometimes all IS within. Looking forward to your next exploits Ms Kali…
