NOTE: These are the teacher notes for the new version of the Universe project. The older version is still available.
This project introduces students to the idea of the "universe" - the totality of all stars and galaxies - then takes them through the evidence that the universe is expanding. The discovery of the expanding universe was one of the greatest revelations of 20th Century astronomy. Students will make a "Hubble diagram," named for the astronomer who first made one, for galaxies from the SkyServer database.
