000000 amu. The fusion of helium into carbon by triple-α process is given by 3 4 He →12 C + γ (I08 - T04 - B) 12. A main sequence star at a distance of 20 pc is barely visible through a certain space-based telescope which can record all wavelengths. The star will eventually move up along the giant branch, during which time its temperature drops by a factor of 3 and its radius increases 100fold. What is the new maximum distance at which the star can still be (barely) visible using the same telescope?
