a supernova is actually the DEATH, by explosion, of a star........
A star birth nebula (or star formation region) is a cloud of gas and dust in which new stars are being formed from the raw material of the cloud. In places where the cloud has become compressed (where the gas and dust are very close together), the gas and dust start "clumping." At a certain stage, these clumps start heating up in the center, and when that happens, star formation begins. After many years of clumping and heating, a star will get so hot in the middle (over 10 million degrees Centigrade) that it will begin to make its own energy it starts to shine.
