equuleus facts - about equuleus (544 words)
A star such as equuleus is a celestial body of hot gases that radiates energy derived from thermonuclear reactions in the interior.
Star formation such as for equuleus occurs in molecular clouds, which are large regions of high density in the interstellar medium (albeit less dense than the inside of an earthly vacuum chamber).
The energy produced by stars such as equuleus radiates into space as electromagnetic radiation, as a stream of neutrinos from the star's centre, and as a stream of particles from the star's outer layers (its stellar wind).
