Adrift: the Secret World of Space Junk

June 29, 2017

Adrift: the Secret World of Space Junk
http://www.projectadrift.co.uk

“Most people would be really surprised if you told them there was two million pieces of space junk…surrounding the earth as close to 160 kilometers away,” notes sound artist Nick Ryan. Ryan, along with film director Cath Le Couteur, are the masterminds behind Adrift, an unusual, multifaceted project about space debris. This project, which will appeal to art fans and space fans alike, is made up of three components: Watch, Adopt, and Listen. First, visitors may watch a short documentary film by Le Couteur that explores the history of space debris. In fact, the film is partially narrated from the imagined perspective of three actual pieces of space junk. In a similar spirit, the Adopt portion of the project provides an interactive experience where participants follow and exchange tweets with the three anthropomorphized pieces of space junk on Twitter. Finally, visitors can Listen and learn about Ryan’s unique sound art project based on the prevalence of space debris. Ryan’s project incorporates a phonograph and real-time data about space debris to create sound for a phenomenon that is silent. Although space junk travels at 17,500 mph, it makes no sound because it exists in the vacuum conditions of space. Each of these three. components of Adrift are engaging and highly informative.

PBS: Crash Course Astronomy Videos

PBS: Crash Course Astronomy Videos
http://www.pbs.org/show/crash-course-astronomy/episodes

Crash Course Astronomy is a 46-episode PBS series that educates the public about all things astronomy. Each episode is approximately ten minutes in length and covers topics ranging from Moon Phases to Black Holes to Gamma Ray Bursts. Written and hosted by astronomer and blogger Phil Plait, Crash Course Astronomy features clear, accessible explanations of astronomical phenomena accompanied by engaging (and helpful) images, videos, and animations. Episodes can be enjoyed individually – although many reference previous episodes, which may inspire viewers to explore the series chronologically. Crash Course Astronomy is a great resource to include in any science classroom, and may broadly appeal to anyone looking to make sense of astronomy.

Google Moon

December 17, 2016

Google Moon
https://www.google.com/moon

By now, most of us are familiar with Google Earth, but what about Google Moon? This lunar version of the geobrowser allows visitors to virtually explore all six missions of the Apollo Program carried out between 1962 and 1972. Visitors can examine a variety of spectacular photographs from each mission via map pins, which arrange photographs by geographic location on the moon. Alternatively, visitors can browse thumbnail images from each mission. Each photograph is accompanied by a short description that provides context as well as links to related resources and video clips. For example, by selecting one of these links, visitors will find the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, a record of lunar surface operations that includes parts of the original radio transcript from all six journeys. An extensively developed pan and zoom capability really brings the experience to life. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.
