About this Item

Quarto. ix, [1]m 37, [1] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Figures. Table. Sources of Further Information. Suggested Discussion Topics and Projects. Glossary. Covers somewhat soiled, some wear to cover and spine edges. This publication was intended for teachers of secondary school science teachers; it was a joint project of the American Astronomical Society, NASA, and the National Science Foundation. The life of a star, the supernova, related objects and their importance in astronomy and science in general are discussed. Written primarily for science teachers of secondary school chemistry, physics, and earth sciences, the booklet contains a glossary, reference sources, suggested topics for discussion, and projects for individual or group assignment. The purpose of this brochure was to discuss the most spectacular event in the life of a star, the supernova, related objects and their importance in astronomy and science in general. The only thing in the universe more spectacular than this explosive flareup of the star in its death throes is the quasar (which some astronomers thing may be closely related). Some of the most fascinating and puzzling objects in the universe are also associated with supernovae. Among these are the pulsars and X-ray objects, the neutron starts and black holes, the Crab Nebula and the fast networks of filaments, and perhaps ever gamma-ray bursts and gravty-wave events.
