A star is a body that at some time in its life produces its light and warmth by nuclear effects, particularly by the fusion of hydrogen into helium under circumstances of massive heat and compactness. When hydrogen atoms amalgamate to produce the subsequently heavier element, helium, mass is misplaced, the mass (M) transformed to energy (E) through Einstein's recognized equation E = mc squared, where "c" is the speed of light.

Hydrogen is the richest component in the universe. It was created at some stage in early universe creation when the temperature of the world was more than one million degrees; the basic element protons and electrons came close mutually and combined to shape the hydrogen atom.

From the fundamental hydrogen atom, other rudiments were created in the core of the stars by the course of nuclear fusion. The accumulation of stars is very high, this makes the substance blend in gravitational pull; the gravitational interaction results in high temperatures, which commence fusion reactions. The fusion effects result in increases the temperature of the central part of stars. So the cycle carries on. It has to be kept in mind that for a fusion reaction to occur, the nuclei have to prevail over their electrostatic repulsion
