Exploring Hell: Avoiding Obstacles on a Clockwork Rover – Must survive conditions listed below!

  • Surface temperature: in excess of 450°C
  • Surface pressure: 92 times that of Earth
  • Wind speeds: 0.3 – 1.3 meters per second
  • Due to the extreme pressure, this low wind speed feels almost like gale-force winds here on Earth
  • Length of Venusian daytime: 116 Earth days – Hint: Venus completes one rotation in 243 Earth days — the longest day of any planet in our solar system, even longer than a whole year on Venus. … On Venus, one day-night cycle takes 117 Earth days because Venus rotates in the direction opposite of its orbital revolution around the Sun

Hello, NOVA fans!

We understand that many of you may be spending more quality time at home than usual. And, as schools across the country close, fostering student learning at home is a top priority.
Throughout the upcoming weeks, we’ll be sharing collections of some of our favorite NOVA films—all organized by subject to make online learning, and entertaining as easy as possible for science lovers of all ages. Astronomy-aficionados get ready: The subject of this collection is “Space & The Universe.” And starting Thursday, April 2, come back to our home planet for a collection of NOVA shows that explore what makes it such a unique and powerful place: Planet Earth.

This link to the Smithsonian Learning Lab at Harvard has created a reference center about female astronomers such as Annie Jump Cannon and Henrietta Swan Leavitt. As part of the group of women known as the Harvard Computers, they cataloged stars and made great contributions to the field of astronomy. At the library, we are planning on curating these digital collections with resources from our own materials, such as the notebooks created by these women. Click here
NASA eClips™ Resources support standards-based instruction by increasing STEM literacy in formal and nonformal settings. The free video segments inform and engage students, through NASA-inspired, real world connections.
Three NASA eClips programs are tailored to meet the needs of students in grades 3-12. In addition, a student-produced resource has joined the NASA eClips library.
