Astronomy & Space Science
Are you fascinated by stars, comets, planets, and other celestial bodies you can glimpse in the night sky? Many aspiring astronomers start out at home, in their own backyard. It is possible to observe quite a lot about our solar system using basic telescopes or even the naked eye, but there are also many tools that can help you identify what you’re seeing and learn more about what’s out there.
The freely available guides include “Women in Astronomy: Accomplishments and Challenges,” “Resources for Teaching about Pluto, the Kuiper Belt, and ‘Planet 9’,” “Copyright-free Images for all Messier Objects,” “Web Resources for Debunking Astronomical Pseudo-science,” “Plays about Astronomers” and more.
