Description:

This lesson, authored and curated by David Stern, covers the generation of the Sun's energy through nuclear fusion, as well as some ideas about the evolution of stars like the Sun and their ultimate collapse, leading in some cases to supernova explosions. The section also acquaints the student with some fundamentals of nuclear physics. In addition, the lesson plan contains a supplemental section, which is a historical introduction to the emergence of our ideas on atoms, nuclei and their constituents.
