  • To see a tribute to Atlantis and the Space Shuttle program, click here.
  • If you have acquaintences who believe NASA has shut down along with the Space Shuttle program (and, yes, many people do think that), send them here to see a list of NASA's current missions.
  • For a very interesting view of the relative size of the universe and what it comprises, click here. When it opens, slide the toggle to the left and then slowly move it to the right as you watch the universe expand.
  • Did Earth have two moons that crashed to form one? Read more here.  And, is the Moon as old as we think? Maybe not, click here.
  • Pick up the trash! Read about it here.
  • See Charles County Public Schools students talk about their experiment aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis (plus coverage of Space Foundation Space Across the Curriculum courses there). Click here.
