How to use star in a sentence?

  1. Mario Draghi:

    In my opinion, the 5-Star Movement has the duty to meet (Draghi), listen and then take a position, it is precisely in these circumstances that a political force shows itself to be mature in the eyes of the country.

  2. Michael Grudi?:

    People have been simulating star formation for a couple decades now, but STARFORGE is a quantum leap in technology, other models have only been able to simulate a tiny patch of the cloud where stars form -- not the entire cloud in high resolution. Without seeing the big picture, we miss a lot of factors that might influence the star's outcome.

  3. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    Hitch your wagon to a star.

  4. Tomer Shenar:

    What we see here is a star, weighing about 25 times the mass of our Sun, moving periodically( every 10 days or so) around something' invisible,' that we can not see in the data, the analysis tells us that this other' thing' must be at least 9 times more massive than our Sun. The main part of the analysis is elimination : what can weigh nine solar masses, and not emit any light ? A black hole is the only possibility we have got left( this, or a fat invisible alien...).

  5. Yvette Herrell:

    We were told early on before the evacuation started that they had looked at every scenario possible, they clearly didn’t. If they had, we wouldn’t have 13 Gold Star families for no reason whatsoever.
