In this interactive laboratory, you'll investigate for yourself how fast several galaxies are moving. Galaxies are so large, and so far away, that you could never see them move just by looking -- even if you looked for a whole lifetime through the most powerful telescope! Fortunately, there is a way to detect the motion of a galaxy: By examining the spectrum of light from a galaxy, you can determine ... Full description.

This online Flash game is hosted on the James Webb Space Telescope Web site. Because the Webb Telescope is unusual in appearance, it doesn't look like a telescope - but it actually does have a lot in common with simple tube-shaped telescopes. "Scope It Out!" includes an introduction to reflecting and refracting telescopes and four levels of matching games, where you compare a simple reflecting telescope ... Full description.

In this lesson students will explore hurricane frequency and intensity, along with the correlation to global warming. In order for a hurricane to grow, warm water is an absolute necessity. So, if the Earth continues to warm, the students will attempt to answer the question, "What does it mean for hurricanes and their intensity?" The students will look at past hurricane data by researching the intensity ... Full description.
