How do we know the composition of distant stars?

What stars are made of is determined through the help of spectroscopy.

This involves the study of a star’s spectrum which is created by the electromagnetic radiation that it emits. Spectroscopy can not only derive the chemical composition of distant stars and galaxies, but can also determine their temperature, density, mass, luminosity and relative motion.

Stars emit at all wavelengths across the electromagnetic spectrum, along with many discrete absorption lines at certain wavelengths. These lines, which appear black on a colourful emission spectrum, result from a deficiency of observed photons at those particular wavelengths since its light is absorbed. It
