Cepheides help

  1. Mar 5, 2007 #1
    Hello, I'm going to make a paper concerning Cepheid variable stars. I need some theory and information about these to put in the report.

    It could be some history or exiting facts.. Anything..

    Thanks :)

    Try "cepheid stars" on google. You'll get more information than you can handle.

    "You'll get more information than you can handle."

    That's precisely why I'm asking here instead :P

    You might want to try Wikipedia. It is highly reliable, and the chances of someone vandalizing Cephelid Binaries is very low.

    I'll contribute a bit...

    The stars orbit a common center of gravity and the system always contains more than one star. The center of gravity doesn't have to be another star, but a place where their gravity neutralizes each other.
