Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
(resung by science)

Twinkle, twinkle little star

You're a ball of gas that's very far.

32 light years in the sky

10 parsecs which is really high.

Helium, carbon and hy-dro-gren

Fuse to make our starry friend.

When it enters supernova stage

It explodes with bursts of rays.

And if the star's mass is big and bold

It will be become a black hole!
