Star Ages vs. Total Axial Angular Momentum in Stellar Metamorphosis

The beginning graph for plotting a star's age against its total angular momentum. I have a lot more work to do to work out the details, just getting the beginning portion, the connection from hotter, younger star to older dead star is the first step. Just click on the image to make it bigger.

For scale, the total axial angular momentum needs to be multiplied by 1 * 10^30.

It is in Kg * m^2 * s^-1 or Kilograms per meter squared per second.

The age in years is the x-axis. Starting at ~1 million years old.

The youngest stars, stars that are younger than 1 million years, I have much more work to do on. White dwarfs and pulsars are the name of the game with those. Plus, something about red dwarfs that could be on the left hand side of the WT diagram. That was a wild thought.
