In this activity, students learn how light and energy are spread throughout space. The rate of change can be expressed mathematically, demonstrating why spacecraft like NASA’s Juno need so many solar panels.

Students develop a model to represent the collision of two black holes, the gravitational waves that result and the waves' propagation through spacetime.
