Big Rocks Flying Through The Sky Too Close For
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
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
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
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
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
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 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.

NASA Releases First Version of Online Photo Database
A new online collection of NASA photographs and images provides a single point of entry to
various photographic databases of six NASA centers. Includes search engine.
NASA Solar Data Analysis Center
The Solar Data Analysis Center is located at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in
Greenbelt, Maryland USA.
The listings on NASA's Photo Gallery and Video Gallery pages have been broadened and
updated to provide a much richer resource for those looking for visual imagery from space.
Researching NASA's Research
NASA has committed to the Web in a massive way. One of its new sites, maintained in
Houston by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, focuses on our solar system. It's a good
starting point if you need images, data, background or links. Most of the "Hot
Topics" have appeared in mass media: craters on Venus and Ganymede, for instance, and
exploration of Mars.

The Space Calendar covers space-related activities and anniversaries for the coming year.
Included are over 550 links to related home pages.
Space Shuttle Mission STS-86
Please check out our educational site, which highlights our flight preparations for Space
Shuttle Mission STS-86. The site is unique on the web, tracking our training for an
exciting Shuttle-Mir docking and space walk (September 18th launch). Everything you ever
wanted to know about what it takes to fly in space, in the words and images of our
astronaut crew. Q&A section, weekly updates. Thanks!
The Crew of STS-86
Space Shuttle Photographs
The collection contains photographs from STS-41C to the present and is continually growing
with each space shuttle mission. Astronauts have captured spectacular Earth-looking views
as well as photographs of extra-vehicular activities (EVA's), such as the Hubble Space
Telescope repair, and spacecraft and satellite deployments.

NASA Space Shuttle
From this site, you can access a variety of useful information about Shuttle launches from
the Kennedy Space Center, including the Latest Shuttle Manifest and a list of future
NASA Television provides live coverage of all space shuttle missions. The NASA Television
schedule provides the schedule of mission coverage and the CU-SeeMe software and reflector
sites will allow you to view slow-scan television on your computer.
Solar System Simulator
Tired of looking at the planets from Earth? This offering from JPL and NASA allows you to
view any planet as seen from any other planet. Gaze at Jupiter from Venus or Earth from
Pluto, all without leaving your seat.
Listen to a live audio feed during space missions. Or read the latest news, visit the
Space Hall of Fame or view archived multimedia clips.
Teaching From Space
Each school year, the NASA Teaching from Space Program at Oklahoma State University, in
cooperation with OSU's Educational Television Services, presents a series of educational
videoconferences. These videoconferences are broadcast live via satellite to thousands of
schools across the country at no charge to the participating institutions.
