Elijah Harrison's math 198 final project
Finding Exoplanets Using the Doppler Effect
The goal of this project is to create a simulation of stars visible from Earth. Some will have planets orbiting them. The user will be able to determine which stars have planets by observing the Doppler effect on the light given off by the stars.
