Hubble Deep Field Galaxy Estimate
This is one of my favorite exercises in the Astronomy course.
One of the goals of the Minnesota's Department of Education is to bring about
a set of standards in science education to which every Minnesota high school
student can attain. One large area of the science standards is knowing our place
in space and getting a proper perspective. Well, the Solar System Scale Model
gives you a sense of where Earth is relative to the other planets and the nearest
stars. This lab will give you a perspective Earth's larger home as a member
of the Milky Way relative to other galaxies in the Universe.
In order to complete this assignment, you need to enter the practice
area for the Deep Field galaxy estimate. Please go first to the Deep
Field Lab page. When you arrive there, do all of the work on paper with
calculator and then return to this site for data input. At that time your can
put your calculations and responses into these little boxes that can be easily
submitted to me over the internet.
