Workspace Method starsAddSingleBlackbody


Adds a single blackbody to stars

Important note:
For a Sol-like star there are huge differences in the UV-range 
between the actual star spectrum and the blackbody spectrumwith the effective temperature of the star. The blackbody star"strongly overestimates the UV radiation.
