Students will explain the origin of heavy elements in planetary objects (planets & stars)
Students will understand that stars
generate energy from nuclear fusion
reactions that create successively
heavier chemical elements.
Students will compare the limitations/ benefits of various techniques for estimating geologic time (radioactive dating, observing rock sequences, and comparing fossils).
Students will understand that the forces that hold the nucleus together, at nuclear distances, are usually stronger than the forces that would make it fly apart.
