|Building the Coolest X-Ray Satellite: Astro-E2 Teacher Guide|
This teacher guide provides instructions for using the video - Building the Coolest X-ray Satellite: Astro-E2 - in the classroom. The video describes NASA's development of the X-ray Telescopes and X-ray Spectrometer for the Asro-E2 mission. The telescopes utilize grazing optics to focus X-rays, and the spectrometer determines the energy of an X-ray by measuring the temperature rise in a wafer due to an incident X-ray. The teachers guide includes discussion questions and activities related to the video content. Topics covered include science careers, optics, cryogenics, X-ray astronomy, and working on an international project.
