What is Scope?
Are all stars like the Sun? The answer to this question has interested the field of astronomy and astrophysics for nearly 100 years. At SCOPE, you can explore this topic by observing stars, comparing their features to those of the Sun, and classifying them. Many of these stars have never been classified; you can be the very first person to measure the temperature of a star! This is discovery in the purest sense of the word.
What do you do?
After registration, you select one star from a collection of stars. Your mission is to classify the star according to the different spectra. You can classify several stars and see the overview in the section ‘Your Scope’.
