Description:

This activity illustrates the Doppler effect in cosmology by use of rubber bands. Students will learn how light waves emitted from stars are red shifted if the stars are moving away from Earth (light waves are stretched, producing longer wavelengths), and blue shifted if the stars are moving towards Earth (light waves are squeezed in front of the star, producing shorter wavelengths).
