These views of asteroids were imaged at close range by the Galileo and Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft. They are presented at the same scale, and images of Mars' moons, Phobos and Deimos, and Ida's moon Dactyl are also shown. The accompanying text provides a description of the images, some historical facts and statistical data, along with significant dates in asteroid exploration. (less)

This is the home page for NASA's Dawn project, whose goal is to shed light on the early evolution of our Solar System by investigating two large protoplanets that have remained intact since their formations. Ceres and Vesta are located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Each has followed a very different evolutionary path, but both processes were governed by interactions occurring the first few million years of solar system evolution. The website provides a large array of resources for educators and learners from upper elementary grades through undergraduate education. (less)

NASA Jet Propulsion Lab: Ion Engines Interactive

This is a learning module on ion engines, a newer rocket propulsion technology that uses electric fields instead of chemical or nuclear reactions for powering spacecraft. The ion propulsion system's efficient use of fuel and electrical power enable spacecraft to travel farther and cheaper than other propulsion technology. Students begin their tour with a tutorial on positive and negative charges, then progress to hitting targets using a charge simulator. Next, they look at multimedia materials that explain the inner workings of an ion engine. The activity culminates in an interactive challenge to design an ion engine using what has been learned. At each phase, teachers and learners are provided with background text, teacher guides, and explicit help with the fundamentals of charge interaction. This resource is part of NASA's Dawn project, whose goal is to shed light on the early evolution of our Solar System by investigating two large asteroids that have remained intact since their formations. Dawn's spacecraft are powered by ion propulsion. (less)

Learners will shrink the scale of the solar system to the size of their neighborhood and compare the relative sizes of scale models of the planets, two dwarf planets, and a comet as represented by fruits and other foods. This activity requires access to a large indoor or outdoor space (measuring at least 190 feet wide) where the children can model the orbit of Mercury around the Sun. It is part of Explore! Jupiter's Family Secrets, a series designed to engage children in space and planetary science in libraries and informal learning environments. (less)
