Online Resources

These links, selected by Aerospace Curator Ken Phillips, are great sources to learn more about Air and Space topics.

Hubble Site
This site is easily used by almost anyone with an interest in the amazing imagery from the Hubble Space Telescope. The site has six main pages, which cover breaking news, cool pictures from Hubble, the science behind the images, Hubble technology, interactive games and a collection of basic Hubble facts and figures.

European Space Agency
The European Space Agency is the equivalent of NASA for its 15 member nations. ESA and NASA collaborate on important missions of space research. The ESA site is a nice complement to NASA’s main website, and there’s a wonderful kids' site too.

NASA: Solar System Exploration
Check this site for late breaking news and quick summaries of missions (past, present and planned) that explore the planets around our sun. This is also a great spot to find out the size of a planet, its distance from the sun, and other planet stats.

Cassini-Huygens: Mission to Saturn and Titan
This site was created especially for the Cassini-Huygens mission, happening right now! Check here to keep up with the very latest news on Saturn’s exploration. It includes animations, interviews, photos of Saturn and its rings and moons, and technical information about all 18 scientific instruments on board the spacecraft.

Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council
The PPARC operates cool sites including the UK Astronomy Technology Centre in Edinburgh, the Isaac Newton Group in La Palma and the Joint Astronomy Centre in Hawaii. The site has lots of cool imagery and information for the general public but also includes more advanced material and lots of information on research funding and science policy.
