Description:

This SEED website from Schlumberger provides a simulation of the life-cycle of a star. The user chooses the initial mass and "metal" (non-hydrogen/helium) content, and the site shows how the star evolves and ultimately how it dies. The site also explains "the most famous graph in astronomy," the H-R diagram.
