The project may take any form you like– a traditional research paper, a presentation, a video, a set of observations, an experiment, a set of interviews, a website, an extensive blog– basically anything you dream up, so long as it’s related to astrophysics.

You may end up modifying the content or scope of the project as you go along; if you need to do this in a substantial way, please keep me informed. Im happy to give feedback as you work. The projects deliverable must be made available by April 23 ....
