The blackbody calculator allows for visualization of the spectrum produced by objects of a given temperature. Users can see both a line graph of the spectrum and the spectrum as it would appear using a spectral grating, as well as the actual hot object.

This is an interactive java applet which allows you to model galaxy collisions on your own computer. With this applet you can study how galaxies collide and merge gravitationally and how the effects of the collision depend on the properties of the galaxies. You can also recreate collisions between real interacting galaxies observed in the sky.
