EPO Resources: Take A Look

Litho/Handouts



Recolor the Universe
Recolor the Universe
2017
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Coloring the Universe/Computing does not end with computers. Grades 4-12 students can learn how astronomers use computers to create images and understand their data (no prior coding experience necessary). Working with data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes on topics from exploded stars, to star-forming regions, to the area around black holes, students learn basic coding (for beginners - no experience required) and follow a video tutorial to create a real world application of science, technology and even art.

Stellar Evolution Handout
Stellar Evolution Handout
2017
Dimensions: 8.5" x 11"
A star's ultimate fate depends on its mass. It can fade into obscurity (brown dwarf or red dwarf), become a white dwarf (sun-like stars), explode as a supernova and leave behind a neutron star or a black hole (massive to very massive stars), or be disrupted entirely (white dwarfs in close binary systems, or extremely massive stars). (multi-page, full color)

3D Print SN87a
2017
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Learn how to print your own 3D copies of an exploded star, SN 1987A. (one page, double sided, full color)

Women in the High-Energy Universe
Women in the High-Energy Universe
2017
Dimensions: 8.5" x 11"
Women in the High-Energy Universe highlights and promotes the many important ways that women contribute to the pursuit of understanding the Universe through high-energy astrophysics. We've asked various women connected with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to tell us -in their own words- about their experiences and perspectives of their careers.

Blast from the Past
Blast from the Past
2017
Dimensions: 12" x 30"
Every 50 years or so, a star in our Galaxy blows itself apart in a supernova explosion, one of the most violent events in the universe. The force of these explosions produces spectacular light shows. Explosions in past millennia have been bright enough to catch the attention of early astronomers hundreds of years before the telescope had been invented. (one page, full color)

Stellar Evolution Poster
Stellar Evolution Poster
2017
Dimensions: 36" x 24"
A star's ultimate fate depends on its mass. It can fade into obscurity (brown dwarf or red dwarf), become a white dwarf (sun-like stars), explode as a supernova and leave behind a neutron star or a black hole (massive to very massive stars), or be disrupted entirely (white dwarfs in close binary systems, or extremely massive stars).

From the Earth to the Heavens Poster - Long strip
From the Earth to the Heavens Poster - Long strip
2010
Dimensions: 12" x 45"
There are patterns of beauty across Earth and throughout the Universe. This poster invites you to compare aerial photographs of our planet taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand to X-ray images of the cosmos taken by NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory. We hope these pairings provide an intriguing new way to view the striking visual patterns made by these very different objects.
