Skylab Experiments, Volume I, Physical Science, Solar Astronomy.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC.
Up-to-date knowledge about Skylab experiments is presented for the purpose of informing high school teachers about scientific research performed in orbit and enabling them to broaden their scope of material selection. The first volume is concerned with the solar astronomy program. The related fields are physics, electronics, biology, chemistry, and photography, especially dealing with electromagnetic spectra, atomic structures, x-ray absorption, radiation, and kinetic theory. The content includes discussions of basic scientific background, a description of the sun and of the energy characteristics associated with each zone, and experiments with hydrogen-alpha telescopes, white light coronagraphy, extreme ultraviolet spectrograph and spectroheliograph, scanning polychromator, x-ray spectrographic camera, solar photography, and x-ray telescopes. Related curriculum topics and classroom demonstrations and activities are provided in detail. (CC)
