The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This activity introduces students to the concepts of the redshift of a receding star. Students will learn about the properties of light, the Doppler effect, and also about Hubble's discovery of the expansion of the universe. This website was created by PBS for high school students, but it may be adapted for lower undergraduate.
