Homeschool Science Experiment: Cold Light. What three colors do you need to make up any color in the universe? (You should be thinking: red, yellow, and blue.) Here's a trick question - can you make the color "yellow" with only red, green, and blue as your color palette? If you're a scientist, it's not a problem. But if you're an artist, you're in trouble already. youtu.be/yCDvz7wmFyM
Homeschool Science Experiment: Using a few simple tests you can do right at home, you'll be able to tell if you've got a meteorite or not! Meteors are the smallest members of our solar system, ranging from pebble size to smaller than a grain of sand and usually weighing less than 2 grams. Kids will learn how to collect tiny meteorites very easily. They will also be able to tell a meteorite from an Earth rock. youtu.be/-bJh41Q6VTg
Homeschool Science Experiment: Spectrometers are used in chemistry and astronomy to measure light. In astronomy, we can find out about distant stars without ever traveling to them, because we can split the incoming light from the stars into their colors (or energies) and “read” what they are made up of (what gases they are burning) and thus determine their what they are made of. youtu.be/l_5kMhkNceE
Jupiter's Moons - This montage shows the best views of Jupiter's four large and diverse "Galilean" satellites as seen by the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on the New Horizons spacecraft during its flyby of Jupiter in late February 2007. The four moons are, from left to right: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. The images have been scaled to represent the true relative sizes of the four moons and are arranged in their order from Jupiter.
