Big Rocks Flying Through The Sky Too Close For Comfort
NASA is watching the skies for asteroids and comets that may pose an impact hazard on earth. Technically, the heavenly bodies they seek are those with near Earth orbits.

Evidence of Primitive Life on Early Mars
A NASA research team of scientists at the Johnson Space Center and at Stanford University has found evidence that strongly suggests primitive life may have existed on Mars more than 3.6 billion years ago. The evidence includes what may be microscopic fossils of bacteria-like organisms inside an ancient Martian rock that fell to Earth as a meteorite 13,000 years ago.

Frequently Asked Questions about NASA

Goddard Space Flight Center
The Goddard Space Flight Center seeks to expand our knowledge of the Earth and its environment, the solar system and the universe through observations from space.

International Space Station
The mission is to build and operate the International Space Station-a world class orbital research facility that is safe, productive, affordable, and attainable. As the station is built this web site will also grow, bringing you up to date information on our progress.

Liftoff to Space Exploration
All the latest shuttle mission information at your fingertips. Real-time countdown for the next STS mission, a J-Track Java applet tracking Atlantis, Mir, Hubble, UARS and COBE, top NASA Headlines and today in space history.

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
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 late 1990s).

Johnson Space Center

Kennedy Space Center
Carved out of virgin savanna and marsh in the early 1960's as the departure point for Project Apollo's manned explorations of the moon, the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) has primary responsibility for ground turnaround and support operations, pre-launch checkout and launch of the Space Shuttle and its payloads, including NASA's eventual Space Station.

Langley Research Center

Lewis Research Center
The work of the Center is directed toward new propulsion, power and communications technologies for application to aeronautics and space.

Lunar Prospector
Lunar Prospector went into orbit about the Moon on January 11, 1998. This is the first NASA Moon mission in 25 years! Using this web site, you can find out whatever you need to know about this historic mission as well as follow Prospector in its incredible search for water ice on the lunar surface.

Mars Pathfinder Mission Home Page
Get the latest news, Tracking, Objectives and Observation at this site.

Marshall Space Flight Center
The Marshall Center is one of NASA's largest centers, occupying 1,800 acres in Huntsville, Alabama. Its primary mission is to lead the Agency to develop and maintain space transportation and propulsion systems and conduct microgravity research.

Moonwalk With Me
Astronaut wanna-be's can get more of a feel for the job thanks to QTVR movies of the Apollo 16 and 17 moonwalks. NASA constructed from actual images gathered during those manned missions. There are also links to several more from the viewpoints of the space shuttle and Mir space station. For teachers, there's a detailed lesson plan for helping students design their own exploratory space mission to Mars. Rockets not included.

NASA Internet Educational Resources
These listings provide pointers to some online resources for students and educators, as well as to projects that foster increased use of new computer and networking technologies to help support accelerated learning programs in education.

NASA's Origins Program
Origins goals -- searching out clues to fundamental questions about the universe and life itself -- will drive technology and science that will rewrite textbooks in physics, chemistry, biology, and quite possibly, history. The results could literally change the way humans think about the universe and their place in it.
