The Sun-Earth Neighborhood

With the advent of radios, RAM, and rockets, scientists found that Earth's environment extends nearly a million miles into space, and the Sun brings us far more than warming daylight. From observatories in the air and on the ground, physicists now study an invisible realm as changeable as the weather, windier than a mountain peak, and as electric as a city night...They call it geospace.

"Europa Wedges" Educational Activity Page

To understand how scientists interpret features on Europa as shown by the Galileo Spacecraft, you will first need to learn more about geologic processes on Earth, such as plate tectonics, sea floor spreading, and cross-cutting relationships. A great activity that teaches geological processes including those on earth.

Earth & Moon Viewer

You can view either a map of the Earth showing the day and night regions at this moment, or view the Earth from the Sun, the Moon, the night side of the Earth, above any location on the planet specified by latitude, longitude and altitude, from a satellite in Earth orbit, or above various cities around the globe.

WAY COOL !!! Put your home computer to work doing REAL science !! FREE !!

The SETI@home program is a special kind of screensaver. Like other screensavers it starts up when you leave your computer unattended, and it shuts down as soon as you return to work. What it does in the interim is unique. While you are getting coffee, or having lunch or sleeping, your computer will be helping the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence by analyzing data specially captured by the world's largest radio telescope.

Looking for the ultimate tan? How about a vacation to the Sun? So how long is this trip going to take? Get on board and find out.


Have you ever wondered when we will be able to travel to distant stars as easily as in science fiction stories? NASA Lewis' Marc Millis, the leader of the new NASA Breakthrough Propulsion Physics (BPP) Program, offers this assessment of the prospects for achieving the propulsion breakthroughs that would enable such far-future visions of interstellar travel.
