(v. 3.0, build 0078, December 2, 2004)
The Spectrum Explorer is a Java(tm) application which allows you to plot and compare a number of different spectra, including blackbody, stellar data, and hand drawn plots.
You need the Java WebStart to run the Spectrum Explorer. Java Web Start is part of the Java 2 Platform.
It has been tested on WindowsXP and MacOS X with Java 1.4.2 and later. It should work on any platform which has Java Web Start. It won't work with earlier versions of Macintosh computers (pre-OS X).
Macintosh Users: The program works best with the latest version of MacOS X, including any Java software updates.
