First, let me thank my new followers; welcome aboard. I haven’t been doing too much wandering lately but sure do wonder about a lot of things. I will have to keep this short today, have to get the three dogs loaded up and off to an early appointment at the vet’s. All their shots are due.
There are both black and white dwarfs. You did know that didn’t you? No, I don’t mean people!! I mean the remnants of dead stars. I am going to talk about the white dwarfs, not because I am white but because that is what our star, the Sun, will turn into someday after it goes through its red giant phase.
Back to the point, I read the other day where they have discovered dust around white dwarfs and are now wondering if all white dwarfs have a halo of dust. The astronomers explain the dust as the remnants of the stars earlier solar system. It seems appropriate to me that this should be, since the stars and our Sun were formed from discs of dust. So, the planets and all that may live on them will be turned to dust. That sort of reinforces the statement, “from dust to dust”. That is nature’s way of completing the cycle and bringing it full circle.
Got to run, you all have a great day now, you hear?
