For some of these exercises you will need the data in this {{playground:​outreach:​haumeadata.xls|Excel file}} for the dwarf planet Haumea. The Excel file contains data on the brightness of dwarf planet Haumea measured as a function of time on two nights in 2007, by astronomers at QUB. The lightcurve plotted using those data should appear as shown to the left.+{{public:​outreach:​activities.nb.pdf|This PDF file}} includes some exercises on Kepler'​s 3rd law, gravity, and density.
