What happens when you start a car? Be specific. When the key is turned in the ignition, what happens? From there what happens?

It has occurred to me that I don’t know the electric/mechanics of how a car starts and I’ve decided I want to know. Starting from when the key is inserted, what is it inserted into and what happens? What is the next stage/event/bubble in the process of how a car starts? If you know a great website with pictures that explains, please share.
