Title: Dying Stars and the Birth of the Elements
Url: http://xmm.sonoma.edu/edu/clea/
Publisher: Sonoma State University
Description: Project CLEA at Gettysburg College and the XMM-Newton Education group at Sonoma State University have created a new computer-based activity. Students analyze realistically simulated X-ray spectra of a supernova remnant and determine the abundances of various elements in them. It includes a teacher manual and a pre- and post-test for assessing the activity. The executable file contained on this page requires a Windows operating system.
