Asteroids and comets impact hazards factsheet Asteroids and comets are believed to be ancient remnants of the earliest years of the formation of our Solar System more than four billion years ago. From the beginning of life on Earth to the recent spectacular impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter, these so-called small bodies play a key role in many of the fundamental processes that have shaped the planetary neighborhood in which we live.This website by NASA its Spacegaurd survey program to identify and track down the potentially threatening objects.

Comet Hale-Bopp [MPEG] While thereare many sites devoted to this comet, one of the best is provided by NASA. The main NASA site at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is highlighted, of course, by images (over 1,700 at present). It also contains over twenty-five animations (mostly MPEG and animated .gif files), several news articles, a timeline for best viewing, viewing hints and tips, and an article on the discovery of the comet by Alan Hale.

Gravity Probe B Gravity Probe B is the relativity gyroscope experiment being developed by NASA and Stanford University to test two extraordinary, unverified predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.Gravity Probe B is among the most thoroughly researched programs ever undertaken by NASA. This is the story of a scientific quest in which physicists and engineers have collaborated closely over many years. Inspired by their quest, they have invented a whole range of new technologies - technologies that are already enlivening other branches of science and engineering. The information is grouped under 3 headings as : General Interest, Educational interest and Technical interest. The page is Frames-based.

Hubble Surveys the Homes of Quasars The Space Telescope Electronic Information Service has recently released breathtaking Hubble Telescope photos of galaxies that host quasars. The quasars seem to live in a remarkable variety of galaxies, many of which are violently colliding....Hubble researchers are intrigued by the fact that the quasars studied do not appear to have obviously damaged the galaxies in which they live. The photos are of galactic objects 1.4 and 1.5 billion light years from Earth. Photos are in black and white and color, and at various resolutions. The photos are accompanied by an explanatory caption, background material on quasars, and an MPEG model of a quasar.

ISIS :pulsed neutron source ISIS is a multidisciplinary research centre that supports a scientific and engineering user community of around 1600 researchers who use neutrons and muons to research into physics, chemistry, materials science, geology, engineering and biology. ISIS is also a powerful source of neutrinos for fundamental physics studies.

The natures of the stars It is the purpose of this site to provide a deep, non-technical review of stars and their natures for the beginner. This page presents facts about stars as we know them without delving into the details of discovery. A parallel site that explores the spectra of the stars examines how we have learned so much of what is presented here. The two sites are linked, allowing you to go back and forth between them to see how stars are born, live their lives, and die, in the process creating other stars, perhaps other earths, and all that is around us.

Two Interactive Physics Sites:
Those with JAVA Capabilities The University of Oregon Physics Department's Virtual Laboratory provides enlightening (as well as entertaining) interactive Java-based tutorials on theprinciples of physics and astronomy. At present there are 14 beta-version applets in the fields of mechanics, thermodynamics, astrophysics, and electricity. Users can alter several variables of a cannon to attempt to hit atarget, mix gases to find out at what temperature they will reach equilibrium,or observe the Ideal Gas Law with a piston in a pressure chamber. Most applets offer instructions in a separate frame to guide the student. Users should be aware, however, that in some cases succeeding (the cannon demonstration), or failing (piston pressure chamber) is so much fun that the physical principles on which they are based might be overlooked!

For those without Java capabilities UC Berkeley Interactive Problem Set, 87 problems (click on the question mark to solve) covering 15 topics, including 35 MPEG animations depicting many of the concepts.

World Wide Web Virtual Library- Microscopy The latest addition to the WWW-VL is the subject area Microscopy, which claims;850 links to sites on all aspects of light microscopy, electron microscopy and other forms of microscopy; and is sponsored by the Samuel Roberts Electron Microscopy Laboratory and the University of Oklahoma. The site includes both a frames-based and non-frames-based version, both of which are easily navigated. As might be expected, it includes a broad spectrum of access points such as Internet Resources; Reference Sites; Laboratories, Organizations and People; Equipment and Technology; Applications and Topics; General and Education; Techniques; and Vendors and Other. Highlights include what is billed as the first photo of the Ebola virus, a Periodic Table of Elements, and the Genome Sequence Database.
