How do amazing celestial objects, originally captured as complex data by telescopes, become beautiful colored images?
You might be surprised to learn that color in any astronomical photograph is fabricated.
In this workshop, you'll create your own colored astronomical images using real data captured by NASA flagship missions like the Hubble Space Telescope.
Learn more about the research process, and how these images play a role in the process.
Presenter is Rob Marshall who was selected by NASA for the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Program (NITARP) which gets teachers involved in authentic astronomical research. They partner small groups of educators and a mentor professional astronomer for an original research project.

MS-LS2-5. Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.
MS-ESS1-3. Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.
MS-ESS2-3. Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, contintental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
MS-ETS1-1. Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
HS-ESS1-4. Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.
HS-ESS1-5. Evaluate evidence of the past and current movements of continental and oceanic crust and the theory of plate tectonics to explain the ages of crustal rocks.
HS-ESS2-2. Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
HS-ESS3-2. Evaluate competing design solutions for developing, managing, and utilizing energy and mineral resources based on cost-benefit ratios.
HS-ETS1-1. Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants.
HS-ETS1-4. Use a computer simulation to model the impact of proposed solutions to a complex real-world problem with numerous criteria and constraints on interactions within and between systems relevant to the problem.
