Astronomy on Tap (Austin, TX)

Machine Learning and the Life Cycles of Stars


WorldWide Telescope (WWT) Ambassador

WWT is a fantastic free tool that can be used to teach and explore astronomy concepts. With a broad range of capabilities it is useful for astronomy novices and experts alike. I use WWT to create online “tours” (presentations) about stars and planets. I also use it to teach astronomy concepts in my undergraduate classes. You can view my tours using your web browser or in WWT:

The Birth of Our Sun

The Life Cycle of Stars

Scales of the Universe

Our Lonely Sun

Tours created for my Astro 101 class can be found here.
