How did the Moon form? The most favored theory - a cataclysmic impact on our planet - that has dominated scientific thinking for over a quarter of a century has always had its critics. But the final piece of the puzzle may just be in place. This radio broadcast considers new research that could offer the complete picture into the events that led to the creation of our moon. Analysis of moon rocks ... Full description.

From our home planet to distant neutron stars, this narrated videotape presents recent scientific visualizations of observation and simulation data. We begin with a dramatic journey over SC99 host city Portland and its surroundings. Later explorations accompany the X-33 aerospace plane on its first test flight, witness Mississippi River flooding, and follow global life over 22 months. New views of ... Full description.

This is an activity about the discovery of water ice on Mars. Learners will create physical models using Earth samples to answer the question, "is it more likely that high altitude regions of Mars are composed of icy dirt (with ice filling the pore space of soils) or dirty ice (with dust sprinkled through a mostly icy surface)?" Included are teacher and student guides and a powerpoint with gamma ray ... Full description.

In this activity, learners consider the requirements for human life beyond Earth's protection: air to breathe, plentiful food, shielding from ultraviolet light, power, etc. They then work in teams to design and construct a model of a space colony out of craft materials that would allow humans to survive the harsh environments of the Moon or Mars. Teams present their modules and colonies to one another ... Full description.
