This unit regards important aspects of the stars: what they are, how they are formed, their life cycle, their classification and the importance of spectroscopy in this field. We'll show you how to build a spectroscope, in a laboratory, with easy-to-find, inexpensive materials. The spectroscope is an indispensable tool for studying the chemical nature and age of a star.
