The Science of Space, Stars, Gravity and Black Holes
An introduction to some of the most interesting objects in space for children showing how stars evolve, during their lifetimes, to explode as supernovas and become Black Holes or Neutron Stars, or to become White Dwarfs at the end of their lifetime. We will also look at how gravity was described by Einstein, with a gravity demonstrator and find out why gravity makes less massive objects in space orbit more massive objects like stars. We will also split up white light similarly to that emitted by stars using torches and CDs and prisms. We will also look at how astronomers learn what stars are made of using the light that comes towards the Earth and how they use Red Shifts to find out how fast stars are moving and how far they are away from us.
