Space Place
http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/
The Space Place was started in February 1998 as an education and public outreach project of NASA's New Millennium Program, which continues to be its primary supporter.
Its target audience is elementary-school-age kids. We wanted to reach this young audience with the message that science and technology and learning about space are fun and within their grasp.
We designed it with a kid-friendly "by kids, for kids" look and feel. It is modular, so visitors can pick and choose different standalone projects or activities that interest them at the moment.
Although the entire Space Place site may be helpful to teachers and students, the resources linked here were developed specifically to help in the classroom.
Most of these resources require Adobe Reader to download and print. Adobe Reader is available free for downloading from the Adobe web site.

Symphony of Science
http://symphonyofscience.com/
The Symphony of Science is a musical project of John D Boswell, designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.
The project owes its existence in large measure to the classic PBS Series Cosmos, by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, and Steve Soter, as well as all the other featured figures and visuals.
Continuation of the videos relies on generous support from fans and followers.
You can make a donation if you wish to contribute support to the project. Thanks to everybody who has donated - enjoy what you find!

Humans in Space (video presentation)
The future of space exploration is "the Moon, Mars, and beyond."
For the human scientist-astronaut, "the issue is one of location and locale," according to Dava Newman.
The argument is no longer whether it's man vs. robot; rather it's how humans and robots will work together in missions throughout the solar system.

Do-It-Yourself Podcast ... from NASA
http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/diypodcast/
Do-It-Yourself Podcast from NASA
Are you looking for a new approach to engage your students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics?
NASA's Do-It-Yourself Podcast activity sets the stage for students to host a show that features astronauts training for missions, doing experiments in space or demonstrating equipment.
We'll provide a set of audio and video clips along with photos and information about a space-related topic. You and your students may choose as many items as you want to include in your project and download them to your computer. Students may use the information we provide or conduct their own research to write a script for an audio or video production

Smithsonian’s Walking on the Moon IdeaLab
http://tinyurl.com/45cdjk
In 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, touching off a space race with the United States that led to one of America’s greatest technological achievements—sending a man to the Moon.
In the Smithsonian’s Walking on the Moon IdeaLab, students will explore primary sources—such as photographs, and audio and video recordings—to learn about the Apollo crew and spacecraft, the history of the space race, and the incredible technological advancements that put a man on the Moon.
The lab also features writing exercises that students can submit for posting on the site.

This area of inquiry can expand as far as the human imagination can stretch. However, this bibliography will not cover science fictional ideas like teleportation, but what is in the grasp of today's technology. Some topics within this area of inquiry, such as missions to the minor planets, the Moon, and to Mars, nuclear propulsion, and the colonization of outer space, have their own bibliographies.

When working on this project, remember that it's aimed at children. It's more important to be understood than to be precisely accurate on every detail. Use technical vocabulary when you need to, but don't use big words where simpler language would work.
This is a project of Wikijunior, a collection of free books written especially for kids to learn about science and nature. Many people have been involved with writing this book. This project is hosted on Wikibooks, and you are encouraged to help participate with writing and editing these books.

Hong Kong Space Museum
http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/Space/e_index.htm
The construction of the Hong Kong Space Museum commenced in 1977. It is strategically located at the centre of Tsim Sha Tsui - the defunct terminus of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. Commissioned in October 1980, it was the first local planetarium for the popularization of astronomy and space science. The unique egg-shaped dome rendered the 8000-square-metre museum to be one of the most famous landmarks in Hong Kong.
Inside the Space Theatre, there is a hemispherical projection dome with a diameter of 23 metres. Boasting the first OMNIMAX film projector in the eastern hemisphere, Hong Kong Space Museum was also the first planetarium in the world to possess a fully automated control system at its Space Theatre. Each year, the Museum produces two multi-media planetarium shows and introduces the best foreign OMNIMAX films to Hong Kong.

Asteroid Introduction
http://www.solarviews.com/eng/asteroid.htm
Asteroids that are on a collision course with Earth are called meteoroids. When a meteoroid strikes our atmosphere at high velocity, friction causes this chunk of space matter to incinerate in a streak of light known as a meteor. If the meteoroid does not burn up completely, what's left strikes Earth's surface and is called a meteorite."
