This collection of physics animations lets students see and understand the principles behind the motion of objects under different circumstances, including single and double springs, pendulums, roller coasters, and various combinations of these. Users can vary the parameters of the animations (mass, spring elasticity and length, track shape, gravitational acceleration, and others) and see how the ... Full description.

These experiments use simple materials to prove that a lot of one's body heat escapes from one's head and that wearing a hat stops some of this heat loss. In addition, students consider how sitting directly on cold ground will cause one to lose heat faster than sitting on insulating material. Full description.

This lesson explores the idea of the expanding universe through video, text and questions. Discussion includes the cosmological constant, a universal force that opposes gravity which Albert Einstein called his biggest blunder, rate of expansion of the universe and dark energy. Registration is required and is free. Full description.

This webpage provides a calculation tool to aid in the creation of a scale model of the Solar System. The program computes model planet sizes and distances using an initial model Sun diameter, entered by the user. It also provides other interesting data, such as actual and scaled distances and sizes of stars and galaxies. Full description.

This site from the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) highlights images from spacecraft of many extraterrestrial bodies. This includes planets, certain planetary features, moons, asteroids, the Sun, stars, galaxies, nebulae, comets, and spacecraft (Apollo, Voyager, etc.). High-resolution versions are available, and captions to the images explain what is being shown. The images are also grouped ... Full description.
