Title: Dying Stars and the Birth of the Elements (CLEA lab)
Url: http://xmm.sonoma.edu/edu/clea/index.html
Publisher: Sonoma State University. NASA Education and Public Outreach Group
Description: In this computer-based exercise, students analyze realistically simulated X-ray spectra of a supernova remnant and determine the abundances of various elements in them. In the end, they will find that the elements necessary for life on Earth -- the iron in their blood, the calcium in their bones -- are created in these distant explosions. The product consists of both downloadable software (PC only) and a user's manual, with sections for both teachers and students.
