There is no star but a name given to a densely packed hydrogen gas transmuting into helium and releasing heat and light energy. The size and location of these dense clouds of hydrogen gas are fixed in space relative to us, and therefore we gave them names to refer to.
The cloud closest to us in space we have named as Sun. The force generated from the transmutation caused huge chunks of the gas to be ejected from the parent cloud. Science tells us that these chunks of gas cooled in a very long time and formed into what we call planets.
Question: Why are the chunks not forming now? Or, is there a chance that we may witness the creation of a planet even now? In the solar system, not in some distant galaxy.
If you have the answer, please post it as a comment, thanks.
As the planets cooled, different elements were born at different temperatures. The cooling planet also experienced tremendous pressures at different regions within itself. These pressures were responsible for the wonderful metals and stones that we treasure as most precious.
What science cannot tell us is how this hydrogen gas came to be in the first place. And how it started to burn. We know that heat of friction may cause fire, so it is reasonable to assume that the molecules of the hydrogen gas collided and grated against one another and set fire to themselves. The question, of how this gas came into being, in such insanely vast amounts, and in such beautiful and orderly structure, still begs an answer.
The burning cloud clusters in space are countless, their size and energy are measureless and the space in which they exist…ah, no, they create space as they expand and multiply.
