Here is a mind map about the life cycle of a star. Firstly, the stellar Nebula makes Hydrogen and dust spiral together until reaching temperatures of millions of degrees. Once it is hot enough for Hydrogen to fuse into Helium is becomes a protostar. Nuclear Fusion and Gravity balance each other out leading to a stable point in the stars' life cycle, which can last from 10 million to 10 billion years.
