    Now I'm not much of a scientific person but i do like to keep up on the times reading google currents science feed to be informed but i've had a theory that I'm most likely wrong about lol but i still want to know if I'm close to right. When I imagine a star, I imagine the most heavy sort of metallic ball sort of separated because of the amount of energy its constantly producing and when the energy fades away it collapses and become this massive weight and needs to travel due to gravity to compensate with the rest of the universe. Some stars might be so heavy that it implodes on itself, hence supernova but the ones that manage to contain the weight and become black holes, does the star move so fast in some direction then collect energy by friction to become stars again?

    needs to travel due to gravity
    What gravity?

    does the star move so fast in some direction then collect energy by friction to become stars again?
    Why fast? What friction?

    I feel like you asked a lot here. First of all, majority of stars are primarily composed of Hydrogen that is being converted to Helium via fusion until it exits it's main stage. Then, in basic terms, gets hotter and starts fusing heavier, denser elements until it dies and becomes several things depending on it's mass. The smaller stars like our sun will end as a white dwarf. The larger ones will either turn into neutron stars or black holes. Black holes are simply collapsing objects that have such strong mass not even light can escape due to it's huge amount of gravity. So when a large enough star collapses on itself when it dies, there's a chance it will become a black hole. Not sure I understand the last part of your question. The black hole won't become a star again via friction. Stars are formed from cool, dense, nebula ultimately ejected from dying, larger stars.
