Shopping List for Unit 7

How many of these items do you already have? We’ve tried to keep it simple for you by making the majority of the items things most people have within reach (both physically and budget-wise).

The shopping list for Astrophysics is small, as we don’t want you building a nuclear reactor in your garage… we’re going to be doing a lot of stuff online and in the reading for this unit. Subatomic particles moving near the speed of light are hard to work with anyway.

Are you ready?

    We get ours from our local grocery store, but I know that places that serve hunting/fishing equipment will also know where to find it.
