While stellar structure and evolution are understood in general terms, we lack important physical ingredients, despite extensive research during recent decades. Unfortunately, these types of observations only allow the tuning of the basic common physics laws under stellar conditions with relatively poor precision.
Understanding the stars is the bedrock of modern astrophysics. The situation is even more worrisome for unknown aspects of the physics and dynamics in stars.
