My Astronomy students absolutely love gazing at the stars and wondering where we came from, is there anyone else out there? and where is the end of the universe?
As a science teacher, I am tasked with giving them the tools to help understand how we unlock the mysteries of the universe.
Spectography is a tool that astronomers use to decode the light from stars to discover how hot, how far away, what phase the star is in, and also if there are any planets orbiting that star.
The Go Direct SpectroVis Plus Spectrophotometer allows students to analyze the starlight that they see in a telescope and decode that starlight just like professional astronomers do. As a NASA-trained ambassador for the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), I have the skills and experience to train students to unlock the mysteries of the universe.
