I have to find out what is Big History. And write a paragraph about what it is and how people interact about it.
I learned that Big History is an emerging academic discipline which examines history from the Big Bang to the present. People look at big history as the most important thing in history. Sometime big history depends on the past. Like history it means the study of past events, particularly in human affairs, or the whole series of past events connected with someone or something.

The Big Bang
In this lesson I have to find out, how views of the Universe have changed over time and I have to explain my answer. Views of the Universe have changed over time by the earth was thought to be a circle rather than an oval.
Olden days were full of superstitions and everything was thought like that. Science has changed everything. A long time ago, Earth was thought to be flat - it's round. Earth was thought to be the center of the Universe - it's not.

The Stars Light Up
In this lesson I have find out How do stars form. Star form by relatively dense concentrations of interstellar gas and dust known as molecular clouds. I also have to find what happens in the life of a star and explain what happens when a star dies. The thing that happen in the life of a star is most stars on the Main Sequence will create their energy by the process of hydrogen fusion. And what happen when a star is The core finally cools into a white dwarf, then a black dwarf. This is what happens when a normal-sized star dies. If a really huge star dies, it has so much mass that after the helium is used up, it still has enough carbon to fuse it into heavy elements like iron.
