No space probe has traveled to any star besides the Sun, nevertheless we have constructed a detailed picture of the birth, life and death of stars from the light and particles that radiate from them.  Analysis of the light tells us about the elements stars contain and their temperature, size and age, while analysis of the particles offers clues about the nuclear reactions that fuel them.  The first month of the course focuses on foundational topics from physics and chemistry.  The laboratory portion of the course involves experiments and the use of online data.  Prerequisites: Passing score on Part 1 of the Mathematics Diagnostic and facility with algebra, which is essential to success in this course.  Class size: 18
