Other size posters are acceptable if close to these dimensions.

Create a poster with your selected stars (see below). Poster dimensions should be 36in (height) by 48in (width) or square (48in). Other size posters are acceptable if close to these dimensions.
Please use PowerPoint or Keynote to create your posters and upload them to the Canvas course page for the project in PDF format. Other software is acceptable to create the poster as long as it is uploaded in PDF format in the suggested dimensions.
Each group member will choose 2 main-sequence stars to follow on its end-of-life journey, in any combination of high-mass star (mass ˃ 8MSun), intermediate-mass star (2MSun ˂ mass ˂ 8MSun), or low-mass star (mass ˂ 2MSun).
Your group needs to have at least one of each stellar remnant type. This will result in choosing at least one each of helium (He) white dwarf (low-mass star), carbon oxygen (CO) white dwarf (low-mass star), oxygen neon (ONe) white dwarf (intermediate-mass star), neutron star (high-mass star), and blackhole (high-mass star).
You will create a life track of each star once it evolves off the main-sequence illustrating the important stages in its life.
Each important stage should be represented by an image of a star at that stage. Example, the Sun (image of the Sun) evolves to a red giant (image of Aldebaran, cooler and more luminous) from hydrogen shell fusion then the helium flash and moves to the horizontal branch (HB) due to helium core fusion (image of Pollux, hotter and less luminous). After this the star moves to double-shell fusion and a brighter red giant (image of Gamma Draconis, cooler again and even more luminous) then a planetary nebula (choose an image of one) and a carbon oxygen white dwarf (choose an image of one can be same for all white dwarfs just resize the image, see below).
You do not need to worry about citations for the images in this project.
The images of the other stars (i.e., Aldebaran, Pollux, and Gamma Draconis) that you are choosing is to demonstrate a star that is at a similar stage in the life track of your chosen main sequence star. To rephrase the example of the Sun, the Sun will change into a red giant that has cooler surface temperature and is more luminous (Aldebaran) then He core fusion will transition the Sun to the horizontal branch (HB) hotter and less luminous (Pollux). The next step for the Sun is double shell fusion and the star (Gamma Draconis) will have a lower surface temperature than the HB, but hotter and brighter than the first red giant stage, then planetary nebula and white dwarf.
