Star in a Box
Have you ever wondered what happens to the different stars in the night sky as they get older?
Star in a Box is an interactive webapp which animates stars with different starting masses as they change during their lives. Some stars live fast-paced, dramatic lives, others change very little for billions of years. The webapp visualises the changes in mass, size, brightness and temperature for all these different stages. Educational resources for teachers and students are available to help explore the life-cycle of stars in the classroom.
