Stellar Evolution: Part 1 | Astronomy Education 

presented by Mary Adam, Astronomy Education Officer

Summary: In this session we will take a close look at the Hertzsprung Russell (HR) Diagram which explains the relationship between luminosity, mass and temperature in stars during their various phases of evolution from a protostar and the main sequence through to red giants and white dwarfs.

Bio: Mary Adam is an Astronomy educator at the Adelaide Planetarium and a lecturer at the University of South Australia where she teaches a course called Astrophysics: An Introduction. Mary has studied Astronomy, physics and Indigenous astronomy through the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and the ANU, and is currently studying planetary atmospheric science through Leeds University in the UK. Her passion and love of Astronomy started at a young age when she discovered that the majority of stars had Arabic names which was the language spoken at home due to her Phoenician heritage.
