Hawaiian Links

A Hawaii based organization dedicated to space exploration with lots of links, including to our Web site.

Featuring some remarkable drawings of planets and comets. Featured in this series of Web pages is information produced by the instruments on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii. Some of the information involves pictures. Pretty well done.

Information on the exhibits and planetarium shows. There are a few freebies, like the Hawaiian themed, monthly star charts.

A site based on Oahu, it gives information on Bishop Museum events and some astronomical information. It's a good place for monthly beginner star maps. Operating as part of NASA's Radio Jove project the observatory receives radio noise bursts from the planet Jupiter and from the Sun. These signals are being made available in real-time over the Internet.

They also have a planetarium.

NASA Links

This Web site is intended to be a gateway for the public to the vast educational and informational resources of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that pertain to Solar System exploration.

A looong alphabetical listing of NASA missions. You can further break down the listing by topic.

All images are displayed in anaglyph format, which means you need a pair of red-blue or red-green stereo glasses for viewing. Some images are displayed in parallel (side-by-side) format and you don't need any 3-D glasses to view them; your eyes simply fuse the stereo pairs into 3-D views.

NASA's Hubble Telescope page. This is the source for information about the Hubble mission, its servicing, and all those amazing images of the universe. Now that the space telescope is fixed, it has lived up to the hype surrounding it. The pictures take your breath away, and alter your consciousness. Not bad, for a Web page.

Up to the minute background on NASA manned (womaned?) space missions. It used to mean shuttle missions. Now it focuses heavily on the Space Station.

Access to tens of thousands of NASA images. NASA has placed most of the pictures taken from most of the space missions online.

Access to most of NASA images. A subset of the collection is the ultra-high-definition page.

An educational site run by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the California Institute of Technology (CalTech). A well done site designed to introduce what infrared astronomy is, and provide news of recent scientific activity. Its own pages are short, and heavily illustrated.

Other Links

A site that gives good information on what's up in the sky, and well as some basic instruction for beginner amateur astronomers. Links to ATM resources, articles, and discussion. Browse these links and discover that mentoring is very much alive. The term "warehouse" says it all. Big, sprawling, a little confusing, but pretty. It features Bill Arnett's "The Nine Planets" (an excellent tour of the solar system) as well as deepsky pages, and pages devoted rocketry and petitions. Some original material, and many external links in a fairly well organized, attractive site. Good material on astronomy and physics, aimed at a very general audience. THE "DEEPSKY OBSERVER's COMPANION" (DOC) web-pages is an on-line resource for the deepsky observer, consisting primarily of visual descriptions of deepsky objects. Besides the work of contemporary amateur astronomers, descriptions of historical interest are also collected, including work by James Dunlop, John Herschel and E J Hartung.
