Journey to the Stars
The Arthur Ross Terrace will be closed this morning, Tuesday, October 21, for a private cultural observance. You many observe smoke and/or fire coming from the Terrace at that time. The FDNY has been notified in advance, and all safety precautions are in place. The Terrace will reopen at 1 pm.
Journey to the Stars explores the birth, life, and death of stars, and why they are important to us. This comprehensive guide will help you explore the exhibition with your students.
Use these free online resources before or after your visit to further explore themes presented in the Journey to the Stars space show.
Use these questions as a springboard for discussion.
This set of resources explores the stars in our night sky, from how to build a big dipper model, to profiles of cutting-edge star-seeking telescopes.
These resources explore one particular star: our Sun. Students can learn what it's made of, how we study it, and how it was formed 4.6 billion years ago.
