How Stars are Born by Edwin T. Hornsby 

In this textbook, Dr. Hornsby explains how stars are formed. He explains that stars are made when large amounts of gas and dust are drawn together in space. The gas and the dust create a gravitational pull that brings the molecules closer together. This attracts more gas and dust. Over millions of years, this gravitational pull increases, as does the heat and density of the gas ball. The gas ball eventually gets hot enough to trigger a fusion reaction. Hornsby references years of scientific research in his text.
