**Chandra Blog:  Data Sonification: A New Cosmic Triad of Sound
A new trio of examples of 'data sonification' from NASA missions provides a new method to enjoy an arrangement of cosmic objects. Data sonification translates information collected by various NASA missions — such as the Chandra X-ray Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope, and Spitzer Space Telescope — into sounds.

**Chandra Blog:  A Cosmic Amethyst in a Dying Star
On Earth, amethysts can form when gas bubbles in lava cool under the right conditions. In space, a dying star with a mass similar to the Sun is capable of producing a structure on par with the appeal of these beautiful gems.

**Chandra Resources: Tactile Universe
The following selection highlights some of the objects that we can 3D print and touch thanks to these scientific and technological advances:

**Chandra Resources: New for Hour of Code!
Try our Universe in 3D: modeling and printing cosmic objects.
Learn about exploding stars, 3D models and codeblocks! This spacey activity takes you through the basics of 3D modeling in astronomy using the free browser-based Tinkercad. Students can progress from creating simple 3D shapes to working with actual NASA data on exploded stars, testing in augmented reality, and using loops and time-based changes with codeblocks.
