Overview

Program highlights

Discussion of the motion of the night sky and how telescopes collect and analyze light. The life-cycle of stars from birth to death, and the end products of that life cycle -- from dense stellar corpses to supernova explosions. 

 Stars and Planets in a Habitable Universe course at Stanford University - Summer Sessions  covers recent discoveries of extrasolar planets -- those orbiting stars beyond our sun -- and the ultimate quest for other Earths. Intended to be accessible to non-science majors, material is explored quantitatively with problem sets using basic algebra and numerical estimates. 

Sky observing exercise and observatory field trips supplement the classroom work.
