P2819: Nuclear Fusion Energy in Splash! Spring 2013 (Apr. 13 - 14, 2013)
In this class we will explore the field of nuclear fusion energy in the context of renewable energies. Nuclear fusion is the energy source that powers our sun, and it has the potential to provide clean, sustainable, affordable and abundant energy for the masses here on earth. Unfortunately, attempts to recreate this powerful process terrestrially have so far been unsuccessful. In this class we will investigate the science and technology behind nuclear fusion power. We will explain why nuclear fusion power has been “30 years away” for the past 50 years and also look into some new developments that may be bringing us much closer to the goal of commercial fusion power.

S884: From Stars to Black Holes in Splash! Spring 2010 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2010)
We will begin by exploring the origins of the uinverse and the formation of stars and galaxies. We will then study the life of stars: The different types of stars, how and why they shine and how they die. This will then bring us to supernovae and black holes. While on the subject of black holes, we can talk about a few implications of this extreme phenomenon, such as the possiblity of time travel, worm holes, parallel universes, etc.


S659: From Stars to Black Holes in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Ever wanted to know how the universe we know today evolved, how stars work, what a pulsar is or what the future of our universe may look like? If so, then this class is perfect for you! If not, this class is perfect for you -- it's really interesting!
