  • Stars are made chiefly of hydrogen and a smaller amount of helium.
  • The brightest stars are classified as 1st magnitude, 2nd-magnitude stars are about 2.5 times less bright, while stars just visible to the naked eye on a clear night are 6th magnitude.
  • Apparent magnitude is the brightness of a star as viewed from Earth, and the absolute magnitude of a star is its actual brightness as viewed from a set distance away from the star.
  • STAR's "heart" is the Time Projection Chamber, made of many electronic systems, which tracks and identifies particles emerging from heavy ion collisions.
  • The goal of STAR is to obtain a fundamental understanding of the structure of interactions between particles called hadrons, which are made of quarks and gluons.
  • STAR is located at the 6 o'clock position on the RHIC ring.
  • A star with an absolute magnitude of -3 is 100 times as luminous as a star whose absolute magnitude is 2 and 10,000 times as luminous as a star that has an absolute magnitude of 7.
