Glad they helped me understand
the high temperature of these stars by using Celsius as Kelvin would confuse me.
A scan of the heavens has shown space is littered with the crystallized remains of stars, and our own sun is expected to go the same way, too. Yes, turning into a crystal ball. Smaller stars that don’t get to end their lives and go out with a supernova bang eventually peter out to become white dwarfs. These burnt-out stars are …
No, far too hot - the combustion products would break down immediately.
Anyway at that sort of temperature and pressure the electrons would be squeezed out and most chemical reactions are basically electrons moving about (vast oversimplification) so such reactions would be impossible.
