The field of space and astronomy is devoted to the study of the heavenly bodies, their behavior, and characteristics. As the oldest natural science, knowledge of astronomy has come from some of the world's greatest scientists, including Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, and Einstein. Astronomy experiments are not only historically important, but they also provide knowledge of basic scientific principles, such as how early thinkers disproved the notion that Earth is the center of the solar system. Modern astronomy relies on technology that has been invented in the last few decades, and current research includes space travel, satellites, and telescopes that interpret radiation from all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. ""Space and Astronomy Experiments"" provides teachers with 20 new and original experiments that help students learn basic scientific principles and important skills. Presenting experiments from all areas, including physics and geology, the text contains proven classroom experiments that broaden understanding of both science facts and the nature of space and astronomy. Full-color line illustrations, tables, and charts round out this comprehensive resource.
