PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Season 1 episode 5 "Supernovas" student video worksheet. (From the Science Channel website):
"Stars are not eternal; they are dying in unimaginably large explosions called supernovas. Second only to the Big Bang, these explosions are where creation and destruction meet. Only now have we begun to understand how these wonders in our sky work."

This video activity can be used to review concepts in Astronomy Unit VIII "Stellar Evolution" or in the Earth/Space Unit XIV "Stars & Galaxies." This episode explains how supernovas form from large stars and white dwarf stars; stellar evolution, and how elements heavier than iron were synthesized in these stellar explosions.
