Have you ever wondered what happens to the different stars in the night sky as they get older? The "Star in a Box" application lets you explore the life cycle of stars. http://astroedu.iau.org/activities/1302/

Take a moment to watch this video, even if you have already watched it. Then read the short article - "Linde Wasn’t Alone That Day" https://medium.com/p/75c68bb2f843 - and watch the video again. Beautiful moment! Show this to your children, your friends, family, anyone you can think of. #Science #Love
