What happens when it exhausts its supply of hydrogen fuel? Once hydro- gen fusion stops, there is not enough pressure on the star&apos;s core to create a fusion reac- tion with helium. Because there is no longer any out- ward push from fusion, the star begins to collapse from the crush of gravity. This col- lapse create more and more pressure in the core until helium fusion begins, while some ofthe remaining hydro- gen burns outside of the core. The products of helium fusion is carbon and oxygen. The star expands and becomes a red giant. Its life as a red giant is brief on an astronomical scale---only a few million years. It will then eject its outer layers as it reaches the end of its bum cycle, leaving behind a col- lapsed core known as a white dwarf surrounded by a plan- etary nebula. A White dwarf is the final evolutionary state of about 97% of all the stars contained in the Milky Way. White dwarfs are very dense--they pack a mass comparable to that of our Sun into a volume similar to the size of our Earth. A white dwarf is com- posed mostly of the fusion products of helium: carbon and oxygen. It is also sur- rounded by a thin layer of helium, and sometimes hydrogen. Fusion quickly stops so the white dwarf has no source of energy and will cool over many billions of years, eventually to the point where it no longer shines at all. Astronomers have recent- ly found two white dwarfs stars orbiting one another once every 39 minutes. Binary white dwarfs are exceedingly rare. Out of the 100 billion stars in our gal- axy, only a few dozen have been found. Located about 7,800 light-years away in the constellation Cetus, these two stars orbit each other at a distance less than that from the Earth to the Moon. The fate of these stars is already determined. Because they orbit one another so closely, they produces gravi- tational waves, ripple-like distortions in spacetime that were predicted by Albert Einstein in his theory of gen- eral relativity. The gravita- tional waves carry away orbital energy, which has put the stars in an ever-tighten- ing spiral. In about 40 mil- lion years, they will crash into one another and merge to form a new star. If their combined mass were more they would collide and turn supernova, but since they aren't massive enough, they will be reborn and begin to shine once again. 1) True or false: The Sun will eventually become ared giant. 2) A white dwarf has a core composed of ???. a) hydrogen b) helium c) oxygen d) carbon and oxy- gen 3) True or false: About half of the stars in our galaxy will eventually become white dwarfs. 4) Two stars in orbit around each other are known as ??? stars. 5) Gravitational waves were predicted by???.

Identity theft is no joking matter. Identity thieves vic- timize millions of people each year. Identity thieves have some sly tricks to obtain your personal information. They do it by: *Stealing wallets, purses, and your mail; *Posing by phone or email as someone who legitimately needs informa-, tion about you, such as employers or landlords; *Stealing personal infor- mation you provide to an unsecured site on the Internet, from business or personnel records at work, and personal information in your home; or *Rummaging through your trash, the trash of busi- nesses, and public trash dumps for personal data. Don't be fooled by iden- tity thieves; take the proper precautions. Be sure to safeguard your personal information, such as your Social Security number and mother's maiden name. If an identity thief scores this information, it could result in more than monetary loss for you as a victim-it also can hurt your credit score and record. You can help protect yourself by not carrying your Social Security card with you and not providing your personal information to unknown sources over the lnternet or by phone. Be sure to shred any docu- ments, bills, or paperwork before you throw them away. Most important, never reply to an email claiming to be from Social Security that asks you for your Social Securil' num- ber or other personal infor- mation. If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from Social Security and you have doubts about the validity of the caller, you can call us at 1-800-772- 1213 (TTY 1-800-325- 0778). If you think you've been the victim of identity theft, you should contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-IDTHEFT (1-877- 438-4338); TTY 1-866- 653-4261.
