The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space

The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space
http://www.iss-casis.org/

The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2011 to manage the International Space Station. In addition to making access to the station faster and easier, connecting funders to scientists, and making research accessible to the public, CASIS hosts an excellent website packed with information about the space station. Readers may view the short videos on the homepage for more information on the projects CASIS sponsors, or peruse articles under the News & Events tab. Perhaps the most interesting part of the site, however, are the three tabs set aside for researchers, businesses, and educators. In fact, the For Educators tab is especially helpful, as it features Lesson Plans on topics such as “The Laws of Newton” and “Tracking Satellites,” a Q&A section, and Additional Resources for teachers.

Astrobiology

April 09, 2015

Astrobiology
http://online.liebertpub.com/toc/ast/15/1

Put simply, Astrobiology is a diverse and multidisciplinary field that seeks to understand the origins of life. Sometimes it manifests as a searchfor life on other planets, other times it might be a deep ocean dive. Astrobiology, the journal, is the “leading peer-reviewed international journal for astronomers, biologists, chemists, geologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, and planetary scientists.” Best of all, readers can download dozens of peer-reviewed articles, ranging from tributes to pioneers in the field to intricate studies of ocean vent microbes, for free. Recent articles have focused on the debate over how to define life and the implications for the detection of potential bacterial life on one of Jupiter’s moons. Each issue features a tribute, a News & Views article, and an education article. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

GLORIA Project

March 30, 2015

GLORIA Project
http://gloria-project.eu/en/

GLORIA stands for “GLObal Robotic-telescopes Intelligent Array”. GLORIA will be the first free and open- access network of robotic telescopes in the world. It will be a Web 2.0 environment where users can do research in astronomy by observing with robotic telescopes, and/or by analysing data that other users have acquired with GLORIA, or from other free access databases, like the European Virtual Observatory (http://www.euro-vo.org). observations on the other telescopes. GLORIA has succeeded in building up the first large scale network of free access robotic telescopes. It will allow any user to take images and actively participate to the their scientific exploitation. The project, which was initiated in October 2011, gives now access to thirteen telescopes: five in Spain, three in Chile, one in Argentina, two in the Czech Republic, one in South Africa and one in Russia. But more will be added soon. Enter or register on the users’ portal and start using ‘interactively’ four night and one solar telescopes or submit your request for scheduled observations on the other telescopes. The first phase of the project is ended (all GLORIA partners acknowledge the financial support of EC-FP7), but actually this is just the beginning of GLORIA.

Zooniverse

March 20, 2015


Zooniverse
https://www.zooniverse.org

The Zooniverse provides an extraordinarily popular venue for citizen science projects. To explore what’s on offer, readers may click on projects, then select either science or laboratory. Dozens of possibilities present themselves, from programs that examine how galaxies form to projects that study the lives of the ancient Greeks. Readers may join a project and start contributing to data analysis of various kinds, from coding British World War I diaries to monitoring the wildlife of urban Chicago. Teachers will appreciate the extensive Education resources on the site, found within the Community tab. Zoo Teach, a companion website, can be explored by subjects (sciences, math, humanities, arts) as well as ages (from middle school through higher education). This is where readers will find lesson plans and activities to brighten a wide range of related topics. This will be added to Student Research Resources Subject Tracer™.

Aurorasaurus – Reporting Auroras From the Ground Up

March 05, 2015

Aurorasaurus – Reporting Auroras From the Ground Up
http://www.aurorasaurus.org/

Aurorasaurus is a citizen science project that gathers real-time data about aurora sightings and sends out notifications to users when the Northern Lights are likely visible in their area. Aurorasaurus will significantly improve forecasting of the aurora using citizen science reports and crowd-sourced (Twitter) ground truth observations of aurora. Registered users get location-based notifications, a real-time monitor of space weather activity, the capability to help verify tweets and search for real sightings, answers to science and aurora questions, and more. Aurorasaurus was built by scientists for the public. This project was funded by an award from the National Science Foundation. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
