Students will find and calculate the angle that light is transmitted through a holographic diffraction grating using trigonometry. After finding this angle, the students will build their own spectrographs in groups and research and design a ground or space-based mission using their creation. After the project is complete, student groups will present to the class on their trials, tribulations, and findings during this process.

Each student or small group of students represents a planet in order to illustrate the spacing of the planets. The Planetary Data Table at the beginning of these activities lists the distance of each planet from the Sun (in astronomical units). By translating these numbers into paces, the students can pace off the distances to the planets.
