( Origins of Stars, Planets, and Life )
Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF) is a key element of NASA Origins Program. It
will study all aspects of planets: from their formation and development in disks
of dust and gas around newly forming stars to the presence and features of those
planets orbiting the nearest stars; from the numbers at various sizes, and
places to their suitability as an abode for life. By combining the high
sensitivity of space telescopes with the sharply detailed pictures from an
interferometer, TPF will be able to reduce the glare of parent stars by a factor
of more than one hundred-thousand to see planetary systems as far away as 50

Amateur Sky Survey
( TASS )
TASS project has constructed low-cost drift-scan cameras and distributed
them to sites around the world. The goal is to monitor bright objects across a
large section of the sky.
TA produces a magazine for the advanced amateur and its aim is to publish all
observations of astronomical interest as soon as possible after they are made.
The magazine has been published monthly since 1964 and subscribers are found all
over the world. It also provides a very comprehensive electronic circulars
service to keep our members up to date.

Welcome to: The Face of the Moon: Galileo to Apollo
An Exhibit of Rare Books and Maps from the Collection of the Linda Hall Library
We have prepared an online version of an exhibition catalog that was originally published in 1989. The catalog was written by William B. Ashworth, Jr and it won the First Place Award in the annual competition sponsored by the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries. Copies of the printed catalog are still available.
For this online version, several minor errors have been corrected; otherwise, it follows the format of the printed version. However, the addition of the many hypertext links makes it possible to browse the catalog in an entirely new way. We hope you enjoy it.
The Galactic Gazetteer contains a database of around 13,000 stars that are
viewable using our unique Stellavision 3d Java applet.

ThinkSpace is designed to teach people about space. Using the internet style of learning we created a web site that would be both informative and fun for the internet user. There are five main sections to the site: Stars, Galaxies, Solar System, Universe, and Astronomers.
Users can submit contributions and images. The web site is supplemented by a comprehensive pop-up glossary, search engine, message board, guestbook, and interactive games.

Micron All-Sky Survey
( 2MASS )
detector technology has made such huge advances in the past decade that the only
existing near-infrared sky survey, which was carried out at Caltech nearly 25
years ago, no longer serves as a useful context within which to interpret
observations or select sources for study. The University of Massachusetts is
therefore leading a new project, called the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS),
which will canvas the entire sky for stars and galaxies as much as 50,000 times
fainter than the stars seen in the last survey.
