Cooperative Satellite Learning Project (CSLP)
The CSLP is a business/government/education partnership, focusing on space sciences and engineering. The program is currently sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and AlliedSignal Technical Services Corporation (ATSC). Students at the particpating high schools learn about all aspects of how NASA satellite systems work.
EarthCam - Webcam Network
EarthCam - Webcam Network. The most comprehensive and easily navigated reference directory for locating live webcams on the Internet. You can browse sites by category or travel via geographical region. EarthCam also creates and produces live webcasts and provides Internet webcam solutions.
Earth and Moon Viewer
To use the Earth and Moon Viewer, you need a graphical Web browser with forms support and the ability to display GIF and JPEG images. In order to pan around the map or globe by clicking within the image, your browser must support "Client-Side Image Maps"--if you don't know what this means, don't worry: if your browser doesn't support the feature, you'll see a page which explains how to proceed.

Educational Space Simulations Project
The concept of telecommunicated simulations was developed by Robert Morgan of University School in Shaker Heights, Ohio in 1989. Basically, the concept brings to telecommunications the advantages of simulated activities shared via computer telecommunications. The concept initially has been used by K-12 schools, but its principles apply to any area of education.

JPL Home Page
Managed for NASA by the California Institute of Technology, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is the lead U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system. JPL spacecraft have visited all known planets except Pluto (a Pluto mission is currently under study for the early part of the next decade). In addition to its work for NASA, JPL conducts tasks for a variety of other federal agencies. (Related material resides along the left side behind the planetary images.)
NASA Ames Research Center
NASA Ames Research Center is located at Moffett Field, California in the heart of "Silicon Valley". Ames was founded December 20, 1939 as an aircraft research laboratory by the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics (NACA) and in 1958 became part of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Ames specializes in research geared toward creating new knowledge and new technologies that span the spectrum of NASA interests.
