SEGway (Science Education Gateway) - Learning adventures in Earth and Space science from a NASA-sponsored partnership of museums, researchers and educators. SEGway is the public user interface of the Science Information Infrastructure (SII), funded by NASA's Information Infrastructure Technology and Applications (IITA), a component of the Federal High Performance Computing and Communications program (HPCC).

 What is a galaxy? - To continue your study of galaxies, visit this site. It is a service of the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (HEASARC) at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

StarChild: A learning center for young astronomers a COOL site for kids, includes Level I and Level II sections on "The Solar System", "The Universe", "Space Stuff", and a Glossary.

Links to Telescope Sites - Almost 300 observatories all over the world now maintain links on the world wide web. Many of them have more information about galaxies.

  Students for the Exploration and Development of Space - Internet Space Archive LPL/Arizona. A large internet resource of Space related images, information and software.

The Interactive NGC Catalog Online - This is the interactive NGC (and IC, and Messier) catalog at SEDS (Students for the Exploration & Development of Space). It contains open and globular star clusters, diffuse and planetary nebulae, supernova remnants, galaxies of all types.

Information Infrastructure Technology and Applications - Multimedia libraries at your fingertips. Remote sensing databases of the earth and the universe easily accessible to everyone. Classrooms on the Internet allowing students to interact with scientists and engineers while they work. A project of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), IITA is working on all of this and more by funding fifty different programs. Explore this site and learn what the future holds for you!

Multiwavelength Atlas of Galaxies - Education and Outreach - This atlas of spiral and elliptical galaxies contains images that span the optical, X-ray, Radio and Infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. These images of galaxies provide important information about the stars, cold, warm and hot gas, dust and charged particles that exist in each galaxy. If you are interested in background information about types of galaxies, or the origin of the radiation, links will give you this information at a high school or undergraduate level. Another link will lead you to web sites of the telescopes that took these images.

HEASARC/GSFC Home Page - High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center

Mount Wilson Observatory - Includes a "Virtual Tour" and sections on Science, Education, What's New, History, Services, and Requesting time on the 100" telescope.

Space Telescope Electronic Information Service - Search for Hubble Space Telescope images of nearby galaxies or distant galaxies

Space Hotlist At NASA - Many useful links to topics such as: NASA Human Space Missions, Space-Related Publications, Information on Astronauts and Becoming an Astronaut, Non-U.S. Space Agencies and Missions, Astronomical Information and Images, Space Vehicles, Space Station Mir, Other Sites of Interest, Various topics (astronauts, patches).
