        Planet Hunting Model

        How do scientists detect planets around distant stars? Use this model to explore how a star’s movement and light intensity are affected by an orbiting planet. Explore the effects of changing the orbiting angle (tilt), type, and size of the planet on the star’s velocity and light intensity. Use the habitability analyzer to determine whether the planet could harbor life.
