CDR112 Star Probe 2.0 CD-Rom US$49.95

A toolkit for Stellar Astronomy

Star Probe is a tool kit for teaching stellar processes and evolution. The core of this kit is a multi-media program that students use to do simulated astrophysical research by modeling a variety of stellar objects.Students can use the program in two interdependent modes.

Probe a selected star
Users launch a hypothetical probe to selected stars. When the probe arrives, users can perform a spectral analysis of the star or plunge the probe into the starís interior to analyze physical conditions and processes found there.

Starís life cycle simulation
In this mode, users select the mass of a star that will evolve from a gas nebulae and watch the progress of that star as it moves through its life cycle.

Lab manual and activities
The printable lab manual that includes additional related activities. They include: determining spectral types, plotting evolutionary pathways on Hertzsprung-Russell diagrams, determining changes in density and temperature within stars, and more. The manual also includes off-line activities in solar observing and spectral analysis.

Star Probe has been used successfully in college and high school astronomy courses in North and South America, Europe, and Australia. Each CD comes with a site license for use on up to five computers. Additional licensing is available. Please request detailed information.
