Gas Laws with Stars and Nebulae - Google Hangout

Wednesday, 8 April, 2015

Gas Laws with Stars and Nebulae  is a Google Hangout (one in a series with Dr Pamela L. Gay) that will take place on Wednesday, April 8, 18:00 (CET).

Much of the evolution of the universe can be described through the pull of gravity and push of pressure. Gravity condenses gas, it heats up, and if it can, it expands, and if it can’t, stars are formed. In this Hangout, we will consider the gas laws, and look at different kinds of nebulae.

Highlighted Mission: XMM Newton

Inquiry Activities: Crushing a can with ice water, expanding a balloon with hot water, and a star formation simulator

A recording of the Hangout is available here.

The lesson is available here.
