Measuring and Classifying Stars

 
The Hertzsprung-Russell diagram is an important tool in the  classification of stars and the understanding stellar evolution. The H-R  diagram was discovered independently by two astronomers in early 20th  century using observations of star luminosity and surface temperature.  With this lab exercise, you will use Stellarium to collect stellar  information and then form your own H-R diagram and see if you can find  how stars are group into different luminosity classes.
For this project piece, use a computer simulation to measure the  characteristics of a sample of stars and then organize your data into a  Hertzspung-Russel diagram. Please read through the assignment background  information and follow the steps listed in the lab assignment  instructions. You will be asked to form a hypothesis, state the lab  objective, record your measurements and calculations, and answer each of  the lab questions.
