Science - Tools of the Astronomers

Students are currently learning about stars and galaxies.  In these pictures, students see how difficult it is to see details of distant objects in space by being on earth.  They used transparencies to simulate our earth's atmosphere.  The single boy down the hall is our "space probe" doing a flyby and sending back detailed images of the object. The student had to come back and give details of what he saw.
