Models of the chemical evolution of galaxies [Tinsley 1980] have been computed, and they seem to indicate that evolutionary effects (star formation and element synthesis) are important in determining the brightness and colour of a galaxy, although such effects may be difficult to sort out observationally. Most of the galaxies (except some very dose ones) show a redshift in their spectral lines, indicative of the general expansion of the universe. The precise measurement of the expansion rate (the determination of the Hubble constant) is plagued by various difficulties (Sect.
Large molecular clouds, such as the Orion Nebula have been identified as the places where star formation is still happening. The interplay between nuclear physics, radiation pressure, and gravity determines the equilibrium configurations of stars - fusion reactors made from interstellar gas and dust - to have masses from about }M e to 60 Me. After a long time on the main sequence the stars pass through a red-giant phase rather rapidly, and then end their 2. Facts - Observations of Cosmological Significance 31 thermonudear activity.
7. The main result is the determination of ages for globular clusters: they all have ages between 3 In the evolution of a star usually a point is reached, just before the core burning is finished, where layers above the core become thermally unstable, and large scale mass motions ("convection") set in, These can again achieve a thermal balance. Only a phenomenological description (the "mixing-length theory") exists for this effect. 1 Age Determinations 43 No relation between age and metallicity was found: the ages of metal-rich clusters such as 47Tuc and M71 are also in the bracket of 15 -18 billion years.
