17 – Post Main Sequence Hans Bethe at 98 and still working! Hans gets his Nobel 2 The Plan A star leaves the MS when ~10% of its H has been burned to He. First the star expands because the fire is getting closer to the surface and the volume of the star that has sustained thermonuclear reactions is increasing. But there is a limit to the temperature on the lower side. Rather than reducing its luminosity, the star increases its luminosity and size!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
