    A star is matter, mostly hydrogen, which it converts to energy. The process is called fusion, and when two hydrogen atoms fuse, producing a helium atom, they give off a tremendous amount of energy. This of course, is what lights and heats the solar system.
    As to "how does it take up space?", well that question just doesn't make any sense to me. Perhaps you could rephrase.
