Tesla's Flying Machine

In a 1911 article from The Sun Tesla describes his flying machine:
"Dr. Nikola Tesla leaned back against his chair at the Waldorf last night and talked calmly of airships without planes, propellers or any of the other gear of the now familiar aeroplanes hurtling through space at tremendous speeds or driving more slowly carrying great loads, and in either case always as safely as the most prosaic of wheeled vehicles."
"...How about aerial navigation?" Dr. Tesla was asked. He considered for a moment or two and then replied with great deliberation:
"The application of this principle will give the world a flying machine unlike anything that has ever been suggested before. It will have no planes, no screw propellers or devices of any kind hitherto used. It will be small and compact, excessively swift, and, above all, perfectly safe in the greatest storm. It can be built of any size and can carry any weight that may be desired" - The Sun, New York - 'Tesla Promises Big Things'

so, /sci, i come with a question:
what happens when a small star really dies? documentaries and school books always stop the narration of a star's life when it becomes a white dwarf, ending with a sentence like "...and in this form, the star will continue burning for several millions of years."
But what i'm asking is: what happens when it really stops burning? what is left? is it left only a huge ball of heavy metals, since all the smaller atoms were melted together during her life?

>You are made to understand, not told, the theory of everything. You are able to truly understand existence and all knowledge is yours. You will die immediately if you attempt to convey this information in any form.
>You are allowed to live a happy life with a beautiful family, a rewarding job, and make a meaningful, but ultimately insignificant impact on society
Sadly I think I would pick #1. I want to know, and it doesn't exclude me from having a life knowing that knowledge.

Hi, I have got a question, its for school.
If 63.5L of oxygen at 18.0C and an absolute pressure of 2.30atm are compressed to 50.0L and at the same time the temperature is raised to 57.0C, what will the new pressure be?
I got 9.25, but thats wrong(cant see why, since mastering physics sucks)
