The Art of Exoplanets

This is a perfect clip for demonstrating how art, deductive reasoning, creative thinking, and sound scientific data work together. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has collected a lot of data on exoplanets but not exactly what they look like. Scientists use data and general rules to create images of what they think those planets look like. Give your class a series of constraints, data, and background information and have them use what they know to create exoplanets of their own.
