Temperatures vary widely from star to star. Some stars are considered to be “cold” while other stars are hotter. It is possible to estimate the temperature of each star by its color. Astronomers calculate the color of a star using two filters, known as the b-v color index. It is calibrated based on temperature. The… Continue reading Relationship Between Color and Temperature of Stars
It depends on which part of the space we are talking about. In general, it works like this: the closer to the stars, the higher the temperature. Another factor that weighs is the presence of matter: heat can be retained by it. As space becomes empty, temperature drops. In a vacuum (absence of matter), the… Continue reading What Is the Temperature of Space?
