How Is a Star Made?

Answer

Stars are big balls of gas made of primarily hydrogen and helium. They start as gas clouds that over billions of years condense through gravity. After a while the mass grows so large that the gravity presses the atoms together into new elements and this called fusion and release great energy and a star is born.

Ask.com Answer for: how is a star made
Stars are formed when clouds of gas, predominantly hydrogen and helium, and dust begin to condense due to gravity. The collapsing cloud forms a large, hot core that develops into a star.
A star begins from a cloud of hydrogen that has gravitationally collapsed. When this happens the fragments go on to become individual stars. You can find more information here: http://www.universetoday.com/guide-to-space/stars/interesting-facts-about-stars/
