Welcome to the Laboratory. Once you have learned about the concepts of space, time, and spacial anomalies, among other things, you can use this page to experiment with the concepts. After some experimentation, you may want to move on to the game, where you can actually test your newly acquired knowledge of the universe and attempt to take a starship and its crew to the center of the galaxy. But, stay here for a while, first. You may find the labs to be fun as well as educational. Read the descriptions below to see what I mean. Also, you'll want to refine your knowledge before taking the quiz.
The Birth and Death of a Star
own star and watch it grow! Starting from nebula, where it will advance
from, until it finally dies. After you create your first star, you may
go back and explore with different settings. You may change the spectral
type, name, and mass of the star. Depending on the mass, your star may
have different outcomes, possibly even producing a black hole!
java applet allows you to add celestial objects to a universe and watch
it grow and change. The objects range as anything from black holes to white dwarfs.
Every day, you may come back and view the universe and see how
it has grown. Your star(s) will gravitate towards eachother causing the
universe to evolve.
