Solar fusion described via Play-Dough

What happens when elements collide


NASA's "After School Universe" program helps middle-school students with certain astronomy topics through the use of helpful videos. In this one, the concept of stellar fusion is shown through the use of clay balls and a tennis ball. Pretty cool to see how the lifecycle of a star evolves.

Now if NASA can post a video about how to unmerge the different color clay balls of Play-Dough once you've mushed them together. I guess that's the one on Stellar Fission.
