New Free Resources

Sunday, 27th September 2009

We have uploaded two new modules in our Free Resources area. 1. In our "Stellar..." series we have added "Stellar Evolution", that discusses the life cycle of stars. 2. As a spin off from a recent course we gave, we have added to our FRS-series the module "A Sense of Scale" that attempts to explain the uncomprehensible, i.e. the true scale and emptiness of the Universe.
