Mass Functions Made Easy With LEGO
Virtual Annual Meeting of the German Astronomical Society (Virtual)
Annual Meeting of the German Astronomical Society
September 21-25, 2020
The concept of mass functions in astronomy is one of the lesser-known topics although it impacts the whole cosmos and is a highly-debated research field. Mass functions can be found on all mass scales in the universe, and affect essentially all cosmic objects. I present a pedagogical strategy using LEGO to promote this concept for the presentation at community events and interdisciplinary education.
