Walking out on any clear and moonless night, one is thrilled at the sight of the seeming myriad of twinkling stars. To the artistically inclined, there is beauty and majesty, to the philosophically minded, food for speculation. ·where a r e these stars, what are they, whence come they, and ·whither do they go? Are they unchangeable through the aeons or do they progress through youth, maturity, old age, and finally into stellar death and oblivion? We ca n follow briefly only one or two of these speculations in these few short paragraphs.
